This is a re-read from my childhood ...

Podkayne Fries is a teenage girl living on Mars with her family whose hopes for a trip to Earth are dashed until her Uncle Tom (interesting name there, he's Maori) agrees to take her and her brother Clark (who's an off-the-scale IQ little terror) with him on business. However, Uncle Tom is more important than Poddy imagined, and major hijinks ensue as they get involved with a multi-faction plot surrounding his meeting on Earth. A fun story.
