Here is spiritual sci-fi for teens-a witty, fast-paced novel that explores the inner realms as well as the outer ones. Fed up with life at home, Jessica Baron is selected for a trip to the moon (I wasn’t at all sure my mother would let me go, but I filled in the forms anyway) The spaceship strangely misses its destination and hurtles onward into deep space for a mysterious voyage that transcends culture, time, and the mind itself. Here is spiritual sci-fi at its best-a witty, fast-paced novel that explores the inner realms as well as the outer ones. The author is as much at home with astro-physics and elementary particles as she is with Western mysticism and Kashmir Shaivism.

This book was also published by State University of New York Press in 1995
