This book was a pleasant surprise. I think I was expecting a fun, breezy, space-school book, but it was so much more. I enjoyed the sci-fi elements, the world building, but I really loved Aerin and Dane. They felt so real, and I was invested in them early on. Both had traumatic, abusive childhoods, but I love how they grew from that. Really hoping for more, and I will be reading more of Osterlund's work.
