A science fiction book about a girl named Pattie and her family who are the last of a dying human race on earth. They land on a distant planet that the youngest names shine. Their iron supplies (thats what they eat) are dwindling, and the planet seams to not support life. their lives suddenly seem in jeopardy. There is a box of death pills that seem kinder than starvation, and as time goes on, the last humans begin to think about taking them. Pattie and her sister decide to take the one chance that might make life possible on Shine.
This book is O.K. My favorite part about it is that you don’t know what the ‘green book’ actually is until the last page, and the green book is really quite interesting. ps: its short, 69 pages.
