Red, a quirky, headstrong 10-year-old, longs to live in her own perfect paradise far away from her annoying foster family. But when a UFO mistakenly kidnaps her, Red finds herself farther away than she could have possibly imagined-- across the galaxy and aboard an enormous spaceship owned by the Aquilari, an ancient creature with a taste for rare and unusual treasures. Before Red can be discovered as a stowaway, the great ship crashes on a small deserted planet, leaving her marooned with a menagerie of misfit aliens. With her newfound friend, a small gray alien named Tawee, Red must find a way to survive the hostile castaways, evade the ravenous wildlife and contend with Goose, the planet's grumpy, felinoid custodian. Surely this can't be the paradise she's looking for.

Red is a stubbornly solitary outsider whose dreams of escaping life come true in ways she never expects when she is abducted by aliens. After a few bizarre twists, she finds herself crashed on a distant planet with a few other misfit castaways collected from across the universe. This odd crew must figure out how to survive, and Red finds herself unintentionally being a leader. It's a quirky adventure with plenty of humor and vibrant illustrations.

Fun adventure story. Brave girl hero, alien abduction and finding a place to call home. Great for fans of Zita the Space Girl and the Bone Series.
