This book celebrates differences while adventuring through the galaxy. The main character is an alien clone disguised as a human using DNA and hidden on earth. She is waiting to be called to space which she is looking forward to so she can be what she was meant to be. The ending sets up for the next book but is satisfying as a stand alone.

Kids say (1):

Space opera can seem old-fashioned, but this sci-fi saga feels fresh and new. Author Charlie Jane Anders makes sure the plot of Victories Greater Than Death moves at the speed of light, offering up action-packed plot turns in combination with heartfelt character moments, all delivered by a cast of cleverly constructed alien beings. Tina's a boisterous protagonist -- brave, sensitive, and ready with a positive quip. Big battle scenes alternate with quieter moments among best friends and potential romantic partners. This volume ends on a moment of temporary resolution, but many readers are going to want a second volume delivered at hyperspeed.
