This is a coming of age story of a young girl growing up in a starship several hundred years after planet Earth has been destroyed in a war. Her name is Mia and the story is written ifrom her point of view. This book has everything a good science fiction novel should have-dangerous adventue on an unknown plant. a falling in love story between the two heros of the story, and a stupid, dangerous adventure for Mia and some of her friends. This is a good but not great book. it just lacks the "snap" that the best science fiction books have. It is a good read that will keep the reader interested in the story and is recommended.

It's been twenty or thirty years since I've read this book, but I remember it being one of the best science-fictional coming of age novels, maybe even fiction overall, that I've read. I think it takes a day or so--even if the day is busy--to finish. Very breezy, but in earnest. The main character is one of the truest to her age as I've read.

Good presentation of life on a spacecraft that is always moving, not headed for a Destination. It's like a traveling salesman -- looked upon by planet-dwellers (all humans from the same lost Earth) as "grabby." The young teen, whose coming-of-age story is told by her older self, first learns ethics as an esoteric subject (explained in several boring paragraphs). But she learns about real life and gets a slow-but-discernible attitude adjustment in her month on a "backwards" planet. The ending is rather shocking, but perhaps understandable in the time it was written. I, too, believed in Zero Population Growth in 1968. However, the planet that was destroyed had plenty of room and the farmers had plenty of need for large families to do the work. The spacecraft actually had lots of empty space, but the woman who allowed herself to get pregnant too many times was punished anyway. Overall, a book to be studied and discussed.

Rite of Passage is a book that almost revolutionized my way of thinking about life, gender, and future space-travel. In it, a young girl named Mia Havero is part of an Earth-derived colony traveling through space intending to colonize another star system's planet.

She is forceful, inventive, and altogether admirable. The plot has ups and downs, but I love it.

I first read this book in1973 as a13 year old. I loved it then, and I have continued to revisit it from time to time over the years. I still love it. It has a good deep moral as well a lot of great action and adventure. It's a great read for teens and adults alike.

I discovered a love for science fiction when I read this book as a youngster. Not many strong female characters existed in science fiction at that time, but this book actually had a strong teen girl as the main character! It changed my whole perspective.

A classic. One of the best sci-fi stories of its era. Based on a very interesting premise -- that Earth has been destroyed, but some people managed to escape the destruction in huge ships. Most of the people were deposited on other planets, but the ships continue to fly around, occasionally stopping at the planets and exchanging knowledge for minerals and other things they need. The plot revolves around the right of passage that all teens on the ships go through, in which they a dropped on a planet for a month, to survive with a horse, a tent, and a few other things.
I was able to read the entire story, and I was interested in turning the page. But I was never riveted, and on multiple occasions I felt the story was disjointed.

I know this story won the 1968 Nebula Award, and so I am going against the popular opinion evidently. I did enjoy it, make no mistake, and I also recommended it to my 11 year old daughter. But, I found the story lacking in many ways when I compare it against what I expect from high quality science fiction.

The focus was on morality, and the story makes no bones about that. No problems there. But, while I accept that a teenage girl is unpredictable on the best of days, I found the sudden changes in Mia's personality a little jarring. One day she's a simple thing, playing sports and being adventurous and then suddenly she's a philosopher examining multiple morality systems, then she's back to a normal 13 year old.

What I found more interesting about this story than the primary topics of the author, was the absence of the familial system on the Ship. And yet, the author really never discusses it. He lays out the facts of the life on Ship, but never really speaks to how this system "works". I found it all rather depressing. I was also very curious as to how these children are supposed to develop without psychological issues (due to the manner in which they are - or are not as the case may be - raised).

I don't know quite what to say except that I fail to see how this was a Nebula Award winner. I can't even see it as a nominee. On a 5 star system, I give it 3 stars. I see that it has merit, but I just don't see how it rates 5 stars. It just is not a fully fleshed out story. I believe this may have originally been delivered as a series of shorts in SF magazines perhaps? That might explain what I felt as I read it.

I in no way felt I wasted my time or money. So, if this story interests you, I would give it a go. You may find it works better for you than for me, but even if not, I think you'll agree it was enjoyable in its way.
