Maya's Efforts to Safeguard an Alien.

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2011-02-16) Excellent Permalink

It took until page 90 for me to understand the illustration on the cover. It was then that Maya has an egg placed under the skin on her wrist which she is to let develop there. It is a good imaginative story which involves a family moving to a new community.
