I give it - 5/5
My review - This book is one of the best books I have read so far this year. It was so fun and the first line mentioned fanfiction. After reading that I knew I was going to love this book.
What would you do if you where on a spaceship all by yourself and years away from earth? That is what Romy is going through. She was born on this ship and after a fatal accident with the crew and then later her parents, she finds herself alone controlling the ship and waiting to arrive on Earth. After receiving an email that says a ship is now on its way to meet up with Romy as it has better equipment and a lot faster, she starts to get excited. Getting to finally be around people.
She starts to write emails to the mysterious J. Who is on the ship on the way to her. She starts to fall for J and can hardly wait till he gets to her but, something strange is happening. She hasn't heard anything from Molly back on earth and she has started getting emails about something that has happened and something she has no control over. Can she figure out what is going on, even if shes millions of miles away? And will she ever find out who J is and figure out the truth?
This book was not what I expected. This book was about a girl who is basically the loneliest girl in the universe and loves to write fanfiction. I adored Romy and I loved reading about her adventure. This book was filled with drama, laughs and even some thriller themes which totally caught me of guard!
I loved this book and I can't recommend it enough!
