Jameson thought the JICC would help shorten the millions of miles that stretch between Base Ripley and Mars, but he''s is starting to realize no transmission can replace his real, actual father. When a new family moves onto Base Ripley, Jameson makes an unlikely friend in Astra Primm, daughter of the country''s leading climatologist, who died in an explosion on Mars. But as Jameson''s friendship with Astra grows stronger, he begins to notice the flaws in his own family. Mom is growing distant, and something is wrong with Dad.
