Friends and Foes

Friends and Foes by Eddie Pittman

Red's Planet, book 2. Spoilers ahead!

The stranded aliens -- and Red -- are trying to make themselves comfortable.  Tawee shows up again, without his techno egg, and with a new friend, or pet, or something, which Red dubs Steve.  One alien urges on Red to get at Goose's supplies:  they had all heard he was supposed to help them.

Her attempts, with Tawee and Steve, produce more adventures.  It features an election, a discussion of baseball, a probe, the pirates of the last book, a realization about the ship that was wrecked, and more.
