Summary, etc.: Petty criminal Zara Cole's painful past made her strong, and she chose life in New Detroit instead moving with her family to Mars. But now she's committed a crime that has her heading to jail. Instead Zara is recruited into the Honors, an elite team of humans selected by the Leviathan-- a race of sentient alien ships-- to explore the outer reaches of the universe as their passengers. When she meets Nadim, the alien ship she's assigned, Zara starts to feel at home for the first time. But there are dark, ominous truths that lurk behind the alluring glitter of starlight....

    Eighteen-year-old, dark-skinned, petty thief Zara Cole inadvertently steals from a major crime boss not known for forgiveness, but, luckily, fate steps in, and she is chosen to be an Honor in the interspecies exchange program between humans and Leviathans. These sentient creature-ships host humans for a year-long space tour with the option of extending indefinitely. Mystery shrouds this program, and as inquisitive Zara, co-Honor Beatriz (a Rio-born musician), and the Leviathan Nadim travel together, its dark side is revealed. Caine and Aguirre create a fresh and fascinating story of interspecies bonding, the power of music, and the effects of trauma on good creatures. A few culturally specific references seem forced, but the bond between the humans and alien is delicately built and inspiring. Nadim (the ship) and Zara share first-person narrative duties, and this is primarily Zara's story with a few intercut chapters from Nadim's perspective. Pair this with Philip Reeve's Railhead (2016), or for a real throwback, bring out Anne McCaffrey's Brain and Brawn Ship series. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
