UnEarthed, written by Rebecca Bloomer, is the story of sixteen-year-old Jodi Scarfield's relocation to the Martian colony of Anphobos. Although she is initially unenthusiastic about the move, the self-described "techno-geek" soon realizes that Martian technology is amazing, and she uses her hacking skills to skirt around Martian regulations. Life on Mars is not perfect, however, and Jodi soon becomes aware of the movement to liberate Mars from the control of Earth.
