      "We are all pioneers on the frontiers of our own lives. Each day is a new trip into the unknown." It's the biggest day of 13-year-old Blair Kelly's life, but she's not sure whether to be excited or anxious about it. If all goes as planned, her family will soon be leaving the Earth and moving to Clementine Colony, at the south pole of the Moon. The only person who seems to understand her mixed feelings is her grandfather, who reminds Blair of the things her ancestors faced when they settled the Nebraska prairie, centuries before. Blair and her older brother, Tom, have both gone to "Moon School" to prepare for the journey, but classes can't prepare them for leaving their friends, extended family and most of their possessions behind. As they become more settled, Blair begins volunteering with the group that maintains the colony's plant life, while Tom competes in many of the unusual sports that can be played in the Moon's light gravity. Just as she's selected to help with a special project at a new research facility, a tragedy on her grandparents' farm divides Blair's loyalties. Should she return to Earth? Or should she remain on the Moon?
