“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE LONELIEST GIRL IN THE UNIVERSE by Lauren James. I have to admit that the cover of this book is what really drew me to it – that image of the girl sitting alone, surrounded by all of that darkness and looking out at the vastness of space. As I started reading the synopsis, I got really excited when I saw that it’s actually a sci-fi thriller, which wasn’t at all what I was expecting based on the cover. I especially want to know what J’s mission is and why it makes Romy suddenly think that there are worse things than being all alone in space. It sounds so ominous…
THE LONELIEST GIRL IN THE UNIVERSE by Lauren James
Publication Date: July 3, 2018
A surprising and gripping sci-fi thriller with a killer twist
The daughter of two astronauts, Romy Silvers is no stranger to life in space. But she never knew how isolating the universe could be until her parents’ tragic deaths left her alone on the Infinity, a spaceship speeding away from Earth.
Romy tries to make the best of her lonely situation, but with only brief messages from her therapist on Earth to keep her company, she can’t help but feel like something is missing. It seems like a dream come true when NASA alerts her that another ship, the Eternity, will be joining the Infinity.
Romy begins exchanging messages with J, the captain of the Eternity, and their friendship breathes new life into her world. But as the Eternity gets closer, Romy learns there’s more to J’s mission than she could have imagined. And suddenly, there are worse things than being alone….
