Fierce September by Fleur Beale
This is the second book in the futuristic Juno series written by popular kiwi author Fleur Beale. The first book, Juno of Taris, won the Esther Glen Award in the 2009 LIANZA Children's Book Awards. Fierce September follows the lives of the 500 Tarians rescued from their failing dome by the ship from Aotearoa. The leader of the rescue mission, Willem Brasted, shows a keen interest in sisters Juno and Hera and their telepathic abilities. Hera's insight saves the ship from a terrorist plot but nothing can help the refugees when a pandemic hits the country just days after they land.
