Robert A. Heinlein - The Menace From Earth (audio)

First published in 1957. The "menace" of the title is a beautiful woman who visits the Moon and is assigned a young guide named Holly, a girl student and aspiring starship designer whose hobby is flying in a great cavern in the Moon, made possible because the gravity field is one sixth the strength of Earth's. Her best friend is Jeff, who appears enamored of the "groundhog" visitor. As Jeff spends more time with the visitor, Holly becomes jealous and begins to doubt Jeff's friendship.

This is one of Heinlein's few stories written from a female perspective.
