Jarra is Handicapped, an Ape, an Earth Girl.

She was born with an immune system that means she cannot leave Earth and portal to other planets like most can. She doesn't just sit back and take it, though. She invents a new life for herself, a fresh start. Joining a university where no one knows her, she pretends that she is the daughter of a Military family and expertly hides her true identity. She's tangled in a web of lies, and as they become more and more complicated, she has difficulty keeping her secret and a hard time telling the difference between fantasy and reality.

When I first read the description of this book, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! It's such a fantastic and refreshing idea and I couldn't stop thinking about it.

The writing is witty and fun, and Jarra tells the story like we are 'norms' from one of the other planets reading her story, or watching it play out. The quirky style reminded me of Scott Westerfeld's 'Uglies' series, so if you liked the Uglies, I'd certainly recommend Earth Girl.

Jarra is a strong female lead, and so loveable! She is single-mined, and determined to make her own choices in life. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and consider it highly original and incredibly interesting. Will most definitely look out for Janet Edwards in the future - promising debut.
