interstellar kidnapping ... or opportunity?

A thousand teens and their teachers were stunned when the alien Garubis yanked Twenty-Nine Palms High School right out of California’s Mojave desert, plopping it into a jungle many light years away. It was supposed to be a “gift” — a new settlement for humanity. But tell that to Mark, Alexandra, Barry and Sophie when strange parasites attack... and they don’t know what to eat... and the island of Earth-buildings runs out of water!

Some claim to have spotted strange tool-users in the forest. Are the Garubis back? Or is this some other possible alien menace?

Whatever the skyjacked teenagers and their small number of adult companions face, they will need guts, ingenuity, hard work... and luck! But maybe the worst threat will come from the former students themselves. From basic human nature.

more about Brin's HIGH HORIZON series of YA science fiction novels

When a group of teens rescue a stranded alien, humanity is rewarded with a "gift": their entire high school, along with a quarter-mile radius of town surrounding the school, is transported to a new planet, millions of light years from Earth. 1200 'colonists,' mostly teens, must learn to survive in a strange and hostile environment. The High Horizon series follows their plight as they struggle to survive, and uncover a trail of bizarre clues to solve the mystery of why they are there — and if they will ever see home again.

Learn more about Colony High, the first book in the High Horizon series.
