At the Desk: Megan Crewe

The adventure that began for teenaged protagonist Skylar in Megan Crewe's Earth & Sky continues on an even larger scale in the series' next instalment, The Clouded Sky (Razorbill). After her heightened awareness pulls her into an alien plot, Skylar and her otherworldly friend Win are back in action, this time in the enormous space station that houses Win and the rest of his group of rebels, who are attempting to save Earth. Skylar is forced to pose as an earthling "pet" in order to survive, but soon her instincts and expertise earn her an uncomfortable amount of attention.
