Martians Abroad: A Novel - Carrie Vaughn

Some mixed feelings about this one.  Well-written.  There are moments it's good SF -- where you get glimpses of future and extraplanetory pieces that do contribute well to the atmosphere.  The story isn't that interesting (other than the premise) at past the halfway mark.  I think it's because the plot has basically gone into teenagers and cliches in an academy for the special territory.  And I have yet to like any of the characters.
