The Silver Ship

The colony planet Fremont is joyous, riotous, and very wild.  Its grasses can cut your arms and legs to ribbons, and the rinds of its precious fruit can skewer your thumbs. Meteors fall from the sky and volcanoes erupt. In the middle of Fremont's Grass Plains, a single silver spaceship lies quiet and motionless.  The seasons do not dull it, nor do the winds scratch it---and the fearful citizens of the nearby town of Artistos won't go near it.

In this science fiction series by Brenda Cooper, Chelo Lee, her brother Joseph, and four other young children have been abandoned on the colony planet. Unfortunate events have left them orphaned in a human colony that abhors genetic engineering--and these six young people are genetically enhanced. With no one to turn to, Chelo and the others must now learn how to use their distinct skills to make this unwelcome planet home--or find a way to escape it. 

The Silver Ship series includes The Silver Ship and the Sea, Reading the Wind, and Wings of Creation.
