To Kiss a Star, by Amy Sterling Casil
To Kiss a Star was nominated for a Nebula for best novelette in 2001. I had a feeling I'd read it before, and was correct, though it has been awhile. And it's a nice Lifetime Network kind of story, where a severely physically handicapped but mentally intact girl struggles with the idea of being implanted in a starship as a lone pilot. It's solid on the emotional front and all, worth one read but probably not two. I give it 3 stars for award nomination and good writing.
