Children of the Stars, by Neil Young

It wasn’t supposed to be this way…

Sixteen-year-old Flight Officer Dayton Murdoch was born and raised on a spaceship. It’s all he knows. His dream to be the youngest Recon pilot in history is shattered when his ship returns to Earth and Dayton is forced to attend high school.
It’s strange, it’s weird, and he and the other “children of the stars” are treated like outsiders by the principal, teachers, and students. Dayton finds himself surrounded by cliques, peer pressure, Earth fashion, and every kind of teenage angst imaginable. He must brave this new existence with his heavyworlder friend, the hulking but gentle Trenton, and his sarcastic, overly emotional sidekick Zara.

Getting grounded from flying is torture until Dayton finds an old junker and tinkers with it in his father’s garage until it flies. Dayton proudly flies to it school where the principal thinks differently!

Dayton isn’t prepared for high school. But is high school ready for Dayton?
