A Day’s Work on the Moon
Mike Shepherd

She always wanted to work on the moon, but she figured she’d have to wait until she was out of High School. But her first job is working on the moon. Bummer, she’s only delivering pizza … from her room in her folks house, but hey, she’s working on the moon. It’s a start.
Also. She grew up with the Program. Which meant Dad was usually gone and Mom was usually talking up PR for the Program. She swore she’d never, ever go to space and leave her kids behind. But what you want, and what real life lets you have are often two different things.
What are the chances that a kid today can find himself on the Starship Enterprise. Read Summer Hopes, Winter Dreams and find out.

This reminded me of a Heinlein short (The Menace from Earth, perhaps). I like.
