As the Evaluations near, a strong friendship is challenged, and a bitter rivalry is spawned from it. This doesn’t take away from a real danger approaching the tribe. One has yet to be seen, and another is right underneath their noses. *Novel contains science fiction violence and some mild language. Recommended for middle grade and up.
