Rite of Passage

The epitimous rite of passage is a 30 day stay on a planet with limited supplies at the age of 14. After this trial, the person becomes an adult. The Earth has been destroyed. The protagonist lives in a spaceship whic observes strict reproduction control. The people on ships have all the technological know-how but limited resources which are exchanged with people who live on planets at unfair rates. They each spread false information and slander about one another. The protagonist is supposedly intelligent but lacks social skills.

During Mia's trial, she faces hostility, imprisonment, blah blah blah. Some of her fellow spaceship people are killed. Maybe. In retaliation, the spaceship people blow up the plane. The whole thing. All the people. The ethical dilemma is about as deep and enduring lipstick.

It is a childishly and poorly written book about an unpleasant, immature child who routinely fails at introspection and self-awareness. Many underdeveloped plot elements.

Demographic: tween? Still poorly written no matter who the target audience is.
