Description: Theo Waitley has lived all her young life on Delgado,a Safe World that is home to one of the galaxy's premier institutions of higher learning where her mother is a professor. Her life drastically turns upside down when her mother, Kamele, a professor at the university leaves the only father that Theo has known and takes on a higher new position at the university. Theo is then put through many misadventures and forced to change the only life she’s known.

Summary: Theo Waitley has lived all her young life on Delgado,a Safe World that is home to one of the galaxy's premier institutions. Her life is drastically altered when her mother, Kamele, leaves the only man that she knew as her father Professor Jen Sar Kiladi and moves back into faculty housing. As Kamele becomes more involved in faculty politics and appointed a new job position, it draws Kamele away and prevents her from noticing how Theo is struggling to adjust to the new living situation. Kamele then sent from the Safe World to conduct an investigation in order to clear the name of her department. Unfortunately for Theo, she is unaware that Kamele plans on taking Theo with her and further taking her away from the only “father” she’s known, Professor Jen Sar Kiladi.

Excerpt: Why do I have to go with her? Theo demanded, and winced at the quaver in her voice. She'd meant to sound cool and remote and adult. Instead, she just sounded like a kid on the edge of a tantrum. Housefather Kiladi looked up from his work screen and regarded her just a shade too seriously. Theo bit her lip. Because, he said in his deep, calm voice, in the culture predominant upon Delgado, children—by which I mean those persons who have not attained what that same culture deems as their majority—are understood to be submissive to, and the responsibility of, their biological mother. He raised a strong eyebrow. Surely you are aware of these things, Theo. Well, she was. But that didn't mean she had to like them. Or live with them. You're the one who taught me that accepting cultural mores is a choice, she said, pleased that her voice was steady now, if still more heated than she would have liked. I don't choose to accept these particular conditions. Ah. He leaned back in his chair, hands folded on the edge of his desk, considering her out of thoughtful black eyes. But a decision to rebel against predominant standards is only half a decision. What will you do instead? I'll stay here. With you. There. She'd said it.
