Shatterworld [Hardcover]
by Leila Rose Foreman, Linda Oatman High

A thousand light-years from Earth, a small Christian colony's struggle to survive after escaping the threat of global war. Their new home is a hospitable but devastated ocean planet inhabited by intelligent, crablike sea creatures.

Rejoice Holly, 12, meets them first; as she watches humans and "hexacrabs" grope past potentially dangerous misunderstandings toward friendship, her burning ambition to study astronomy puts her in conflict with her parents and community leaders, who want to create an agrarian, non-technological society.

Before the colony's arrival, the planet's surface and atmosphere had been radically changed by a giant meteor strike, and when an asteroid is discovered on a collision course, Rejoice's avocation is validated; with thought and prayer she devises a feasible way to avert the catastrophe.

Eerdmans Publishing Company (March 1995). Hardcover. 168 pages.
