The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch (Continued)
After a prank that Stephen and Jenny (a girl he meets there) play goes horribly wrong, they both discover that Settler's Landing isn't as stable as it appears.
I really loved this book because of the cautious, quiet, and obedient protagonist and all the stages Stephen goes through. He changes from being cautious and closed to trusting those around him. Although he passed on early in the book, his grandpa's strict voice remains in Stephen's head which is how Stephen makes his decisions. Another outcast in Settler's Landing, Jenny Tan, is Chinese. Everyone calls her a traitor and therefore, she is just like Stephen at the beginning – quiet and untrusting, but strong and is a big influence on Stephen.
