Review of Salvage-Alexandra Duncan

Part sci-fi & part fantasy, this debut novel is a winner.  The heroine, Ava, is raised on a ship with a view of Earth as it rotates in the void.  She doesn't know her parents, cannot read or write and being a girl, isn't allowed to do the type of tasks she'd excel at - like fixing mechanical things.  When she is banned from the ship for an indiscretion, she lands on a shattered Earth and meets women who pilot ships and are good at it.  After a journey to find a relative in Mumbai, she meets more people who accept her skills and respect her.  When she finally finds her former love, will she give it all up and go back to her old life or stay with her new friends?  4 Elves- Highly recommended for teens
