Mars Girl Earth Boy is a celestial coming-of-age adventure story about Marietta, the first human born on Mars. She is an active member of Mars Base I, whose 20-year mission is to settle the planet. One of the challenges is to alter the atmosphere of the Red Planet, making it more conducive to human life. But large-scale success has evaded them due to their inability to find enough water. It’s now the year 2045 and Commander Ernesto Cardenas of the United Nations Aerospace Administration has just arrived with his wife and young son Ernie to audit the Base’s efforts and decide its fate. In a surprising twist, their survival and that of the Mars Base eventually comes down to the success of Marietta and Ernie as they take off on a wild, unauthorized exploration of a mysterious “pyramid” thought to hold the secret to life on Mars.
