Item Name & Description: Earthseed and Farseed by Pamela Sargent (trade paperbacks).
These are books 1 and 2 of the (completed) Seed Trilogy, in which, over a century earlier, the people of a dying Earth launched a ship to find a habitable world for the children the ship creates from its genetic banks. In Earthseed, the teenagers who have been raised by Ship face the challenge of surviving on their own; Farseed takes place twenty years later.
Earthseed was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults; in a starred review, Booklist called it “A melding of the psychological and the high adventure story” and a “gripping, emotion-evoking narrative.” Farseed was a VOYA Best Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Selection.
