Yalena Russo, your STAR Academy invitation has arrived.

Unlike other teenagers across the near worlds, Yalena isn't space-crazed. But a surprise invitation to join the exclusive STAR Academy opens a window to her unknown origins, making her ponder... What if space is where she belongs?

Mystified by the leadership trio known as the O'Donnells, as well as the reason they brought her on board, Yalena stumbles onto an alarming secret. Pulled deeper into the mystery by the commander's son, she will find that some riddles can be hard to walk away from-especially if she is the one holding the answers. 

Take a plunge into the not-so-near future, where travel is interplanetary, competition is a rush, and even the elite don't always play by the rules. 

---This is an excerpt containing Chapter 1 only---
---The full novel can be found on Amazon---

Except from Adeline sounds initially like Adeline giving gifts, not being the gift. "Other than" or "with the exception of" would be clearer phrasing
