When one embarks on a long, one-way journey, there is loss and there are people left behind. Klages provides a tender story about two girls, one of whom is setting out with her parents on a Generation Starship. She has a bucket list of things she wants to do before departure day, and it’s a bittersweet final morning as she and her friend head out on their bikes, in an adept, tender story.
