Romy Silvers is either the luckiest or unluckiest person in space. She’s managed to survive for years on her own on a ship that was supposed to be full of space settlers going off to what NASA thinks will be a habitable planet. She thinks she’ll be in her forties by the time she gets there until NASA launches another ship – a newer, faster one, full of updated tech – which just might change her whole future.
What starts off your basic sci-fi thing morphs into maybe something else – a romance? A mystery? A thriller? However you want to look at it, it’s a whole lot of fun. Just when you think you’ve figured one thing out, some new twist appears. Romy is super smart and oh-so-clever when she needs to be, and she was just the character I needed to jolt me out of my reading slump. Woo hoo!
