The Loneliest Girl

What worked: This is one of those books you can't put down! I literally stayed up until the early morning hours reading as I had to know what would happen!

Romy Silvers is all alone in space. Both of her astronaut parents are dead and she's set to continue the mission on the spaceship Infinity. Her loneliness is so plausible and believable. She writes fanfic based on a TV series to pass the time until she arrives at an Earth-like planet.

What really worked has to be the email correspondence she has with a boy on another ship that is suppose to meet up with her. Each of these emails has Romy open up and share her fears, hopes, and she even starts to fall for this boy. Those scenes are strong and you really hope that they will have a happily ever after.

But there's nothing predictable about this Sci-Fi thriller. There's twists,turns, and betrayals. There's a painful secret on what really happened on her ship that lead to the deaths of her parents. She has nightmares that hint at these truths. There's also a huge reveal that has Romy have to push pass her fears if she wants to survive.

Engaging Sci-fi thriller that is guaranteed to keep you reading until the end. Fans of Beth Revis are sure to love this book.

Good Points
1. Edge of the seat suspense
2. Engaging story of a lone girl in space and the 'boy' she falls for
