Earth Girl takes place in the year 2789 where "portaling" between planets is a part of daily life for the people whose bodies can handle it. People who are unable to travel to other worlds and have to live on Earth are considered handicapped and are occasionally treated poorly by those who can use portals. Even though handicapped people are guaranteed a job, home, and money from the governent a handicapped girl named Jarra is still angered by the way "normal" people treat them. So to show everyone handicapped people are humans too Jarra plans to enter an "off world" university that will spend the first few months on earth to learn of its history. After fitting in and making some friends she would then reveal that she was handicapped. Jarra couldn't wait to see the look on their faces when they'd realizeded they had been friends with an "ape." The only question was: could she convince them?

Opinion: 

This was one of the most wonderful science fiction books I have ever read! It was easy to relate to the character's thoughts and feelings even though the story is far into the future, and while there was some romance there was plenty of action and adventure too. I would recomend this to readers looking for an exciting book with the perfect balance of adventure, suspence, and love.
