Miss Featonby wants to read this book, so therefore it must be good!
It is a psychological thriller set in space
Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never met, never even spoken to – someone who is light years away
Romy Silvers is the
only surviving crew-member of a spaceship travelling to a new planet, on
a mission to establish a second home for humanity amongst the stars.
Alone in space, she is the loneliest girl in the universe until she
hears about a new ship which has launched from Earth – with a single
passenger on board. A boy called J.
Their only communication with
each other is via email – and due to the distance between them, their
messages take months to transmit across space. And yet Romy finds
herself falling in love.
But what does Romy really know about J? And what do the mysterious messages which have started arriving from Earth really mean?
Sometimes, there’s something worse than being alone . . .
favourite Lauren James book yet! She masters all the plot twists and
the slow release of information and revelations so you never know who
you can trust (just like Romy!) It felt like a very classic
psychological thriller set in space while also being completely
unpredictable. The setting was so atmospheric and the way the novel
progresses is absolutely amazing. As soon as things started to go wrong,
I couldn't put the book down.
With such a beautiful cover, and a
fantastic duology behind her, Lauren James had a lot to live up to and
she knocked it out of the park or, more accurately, the universe! "- Maddie
