How do you tell your part in the biggest tale in history?

I ask because it's what I have to do. I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player (and a pawn) in a interstellar chess match to save humanity, or to see it fall. Witness to history. Friend. Daughter. Human. Seventeen years old.

Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: How I did what I did — how I did what I had to do — not just to stay alive but to keep you alive, too. All of you. I'm going to tell it to you now, the only way I know how: not straight but true, the whole thing, to try make you feel what I felt: the joy and terror and uncertainty, panic and wonder, despair and hope. Everything that happened, bringing us to Earth, and Earth out of its captivity. All through my eyes.

It's a story you know. But you don't know it all.

From the Inside Flap:

Meet Zoe Boutin-Perry. Daughter. Colonist. Icon. The only hope for the people she loves.Sixteen years old.Zoe thought when her parents were selected to lead a new colony world, that the three of them would begin a new life among that stars—but the colony isn't what it seems. Zoe, her family and her fellow colonists are unwilling thrust front and center in a struggle between the human Colonial Union and the alien Conclave, and there's no guarantee that any of them, human or alien, will survive.Zoe is more than just a teenager caught in the middle. Her unique past makes her the one person who can save her colony, and in saving it, save humanity. But it won't be easy, or simple, or sure. Zoe will need every bit of her intelligence, wit and will to help her family and friends, and make it back to them alive.The fourth book in the Old Man's War series, and a companion book to The Last Colony, Zoe's Tale was nominated for the Hugo and Norton Awards.
