The Telmaj is a story that takes place in outer space. It starts with Smijj, the main character, who since childhood has been able to go places just thinking about them, nearly being caught stealing a valuable statue. He works his way out of that situation easy enough.
His whole future is decided by choosing to eat lunch in a restaurant filled with old people. Mar, an elderly lady inside, asks him to carry her tray for her. He is asked to help with her and her crew’s work being intergalactic mail carriers.
After the day’s work, without meaning to, Smijj reappears on the mail ship. He learns that he is not human, after all, but a Telmaj from the planet Telmaja, where Telmajs are being turned into slaves for the universal government.
He is put into slavery soon after being recognized as a Telmaj. Almost nobody had ever escaped from a Unified Government ship. Why should Smijj be any different?
I like the true-to-life characters and the truths staring boldly from the page about how every life has a meaning, shown discretely through the topic of slavery. A great book for ages 8 to 14.
