"Something's Alive In There!"She was just a little girl, with a tiny horn in the center of her forehead, funny-looking feet, beautiful silver hair, and several curious powers: the ability to purify air and water, make plants grow, and heal scars and broken bones. A trio of grizzled prospectors found her drifting in an escape pod amid the asteroids, adopted her, and took her to the bandit planet Kezdet, a place where no questions are asked and the girl might grow up free. But Kezdet has its own dark secret.

But free little girls have a way of growing into freedom-loving young women, and Acorna has special plans all her own. . .

this was much more YA than I remembered from when I read it in '97.

Pretty interesting introduction to an Anne McCaffrey series (new-to-me). Not necessarily as strong as the Pern novels, but good enough to make me want to read the next one in line.
