Romy Silvers is the final crew member aboard the Infinity. Despite being hurtled through space towards Earth II, she wants nothing more than to be an average 16 year-old girl. With no parents and no companions, save for Dr. Molly Simmons, her psychologist who is a million miles too far. One day, she receives an email from Molly, explaining that they are sending another ship to meet her halfway through the journey and accompany her. Ecstatic, she sends a email to the Eternity now in tow. Message by message she slowly begins to fall for J, the captain. As the ship draws closer though, something begins to feel off.
This book was a really quick read. In the beginning it feels a little cliché, but as the book moves on, it takes a turn. I really liked this book, and by the end it left me feeling a little rattled. In the beginning, you in a way pity Romy for her sad life. She’s alone, in the middle of nowhere. But as hope comes along in the form of the Eternity, you can’t help but to root for her, but by the end, the book takes a sharp turn, leaving you terrified and saddened. This book, despite short, will leave you with a rollercoaster of emotions.
