I love this cover because it reflects the book so well. The image
of a girl standing alone on a desolate world is a perfect depiction of my protagonist, Ann, as well as her
“sand over stone” world, Eco. But it’s also symbolic, because although Ann isn’t really alone, she often
feels isolated on her frontier planet. The addition of the image of the Earth is also appropriately
symbolic. Ann can’t actually see the Earth from Eco, but since her goal is to live on Earth it’s always on
her mind, so the inclusion of the Earth image is a wonderful metaphor for her hopes and
For a ticket to Earth, seventeen-year-old Anna-Maria “Ann” Solano is willing
to jettison her birth planet, best friend, and the boy who loves her. Especially since all she’s required to
do is escort Dace Keeling, a young naturalist, through the wilderness of the partially terraformed planet
Eco. Ann‘s determination to escape the limitations of her small, frontier colony never falters, until
Dace’s expeditions uncover three secrets. One offers riches, one shatters Ann’s perceptions of herself,
and one reveals that the humans stranded on Eco are not its only inhabitants.
Ann’s willing to sacrifice friendship and love for a new life on Earth. But when
an entire species is placed in jeopardy by her actions, she must make a choice – fulfill the dream that’s
always sustained her, or save the planet she’s never considered home.
