Leo Graf was just your average highly efficient engineer: mind your own business, fix what's wrong, and move on to the next job. But all that changed on his assignment to the Cay Habitat, where a group of humanoids had been secretly, commercially bioengineered for working in free fall. Could he just stand there and allow the exploitation of hundreds of helpless children merely to enhance the bottom line of a heartless mega-corporation? He hadn't anticipated a situation where the right thing to do was neither safe, nor in the rules. Leo adopted a thousand quaddies. Now all he had to do was teach them to be free.

I really like the concept here, Bujold gives us a lot to think about. But I can't help feeling that this is a retread, something I've seen plenty of times before. New group of people is treated as an oppressed minority, denied there rights by callous (normal) humans--it's this part that really gets me, I have a hard time understanding this kind of character, they're so often poorly written. And, to be fair, this was written in the mid-80s, it may not so much that she's retreading well walked ground as that others are retreading what she has done.
