To the Left of Your North Star
by Michelle Peart
Edward's famous father has dragged him to Abaytor on a mission to save Earth’s bees - but Edward just wants to go home. Burn, an off-kilter Abaytorian, is charged with escorting Edward down the Copper River to the spaceship. They travel through perilous lands on a makeshift raft, in constant battle with the river, themselves and each other - while Edward slowly learns about trust and acceptance.
