This book started for me what became a lifelong love affair with the science fiction genre. I also think that Cat, the main character, also counts as my first literary crush.

After that first encounter, I reread it, and the book prior to and the two books that came after it, far more times than I can remember. I would recommend everything by Joan D. Vinge but I will say, if you get hooked by her, you are destined to be frustrated as she is not a prolific writer, merely an amazing one.

Cat is an orphan, and a mixed-breed part human, part alien , and is trying to find a place where he can survive. Vinge does an amazing job of conveying what it feels like to be a loner and an outcast with an unpleasant past, but a need to be somebody and do something worthwhile.
