Demian's Thoughts:

The characters in this book are really exceptionally annoying, but it's otherwise about on a par with the other books in the series.

Dtar's Thoughts:

I found the science in the book to be pretty good, with some tough choices to make in a fight against the pull of gravity and a lack of resources. Speaking of resources, the concept of colonizing other planets because of population pressure on Earth is a good one for the young reader and I imagine that the characters might work for someone of the target audience (perhaps 8-12).
