She can’t be serious about buying a homestead on Mars. Moving to Mars is something people say they would like to do, like water skiing, without ever thinking they might have to accept an invitation.
Jesse didn’t think Marisol would get the internship, but she did, and now she’s got an offer for her dream job with Brouhaha, the company that makes the miracle building material Metis Shield. She’s working on Mars at the facility where they process the only known deposit of the newly found metal, Metis, in the entire galaxy. His best friend Sasha is on his way to a great life on the new frontier, too. Jesse’s running out of excuses for not buying his ticket on the rocket, but they come down to: he doesn’t want to, and he can’t afford it.
He has a secret, though. A unique family history, captured in a centuries old diary, that might hold the key to finally breaking free of the LeBou "family curse." With a little help from Marisol and his friends, Jesse plans to stake a claim, make a fortune, and bring Marisol home…
Unfortunately, neither Jesse nor Marisol realize they’re stirring long-simmering resentments from before they were even born, among powerful people, each of whom is determined to control the fate of the newly settled Mars.
