So I've been wondering for some time what we might learn from Jarra in the upcoming book Earth and Water. We won't know for sure until Janet releases the book, but I have a few ideas about what it may contain. Granted I may be totally wrong about these, but considering what Earth and Fire and Earth and Air were about, I think these are at least possibilities for the the third novella from 2788.
In The End, and the New Beginning, Jarra offhandedly mentions there was a crisis at her Next Step and that she ended up being chased by a Hospital Earth Truancy Inspector. Since we never go any details on that, and Jarra is famous for babbling about stuff mid action, I've been wondering if that event might not be in a later book.
We also get told she became a Next of Kin while on the run from the Truancy Inspector. And at the time she was also still taking lessons from Gradin in an area where there wasn't any archeology currently happening, as the team Velaska temporarily joined was sent in to dig the bones up. And while we do get told some at the memorial ceremony about what happened there, and how it pushed Jarra into wanting to take revenge, I feel there is more to that story than either Valeska or Jarra are telling us.
Also, the fact that Keon and Issette are at the original burial ceremony makes me suspect that they have some sizable rolls to play in this story too.
