Best friends, Aly and Catty, have their friendship tested when they must learn what they need to know to ensure the survival of their tribe and planet. Evaluations of the Tribe by Raphyel M. Jordan is a science fiction novel about alien beings and an alien environment, but is also a coming-of-age novel of a sort. An interesting theme written in rather choppy and simplistic language, that switches back and forth between Aly and Catty at a relatively breakneck pace.
Not sure how to categorize this book. The author says it’s not a book for young readers, but the language usage is more appropriate for younger readers than more mature readers. I have mixed emotions about it – high marks for the theme, a few points off for the writing style, I end up giving it three and a half stars.
