In Edwards’ sci-fi sequel to Earth Girl (2013), Jarra has a lot to prove. After being honored for her daring rescue of the crew of a crashed spacecraft, she finds herself in the spotlight. Jarra is one of the unlucky few born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets and as a result, she's ridiculed as a "throwback" by the rest of the universe. But Jarra is on a mission to prove that Earth Girls are just as good as anyone else. Now the planet is under the threat of an alien invasion and Jarra must summon all her courage and knowledge to stave off the attack and save Earth.
