“I’m balanced on the edge of oblivion with only a fragile skin of metal separating me from the void of space.”
I really do have a huge soft spot for YA. This one drew me in because of its sci-fi qualities but also it’s teenage-feelings-and-crap style. The whole concept of this novel felt like a YA version of The Martian – which is a very good thing to be. Essentially, a girl is born on a spaceship heading to a new planet but the other crew and her parents die so she grows up alone.
What I liked most about this novel was the character. Romy, despite being in a situation no one in this world would ever be in right now, felt totally real. I felt her fear, her anxiety, and her determination.
