Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lauren Ezzo’s emotionally charged narration…lets Romy’s mercurial moods infect the listener—the pain of her losses, the quickened speech and desperate whine of her occasional panic in the vastness of space, and the sweet glee of a girl getting to know a boy. As complications arise, Ezzo rockets toward the heart-stopping conclusion. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Black Mirror-esque. A fantastic slow-build drama. Lauren James is a genius.” SFX Magazine
“Gripping psychological thriller with a very relatable heroine.” Bookseller
“As much psychological thriller as space odyssey…Focus on the mental pressures is intriguing. For fans of speculative fiction with lots of plot twists.” Kirkus Reviews
“Shocking and brutal…The sinister realism of Romy’s situation is as terrifying as it is gripping, and I was rooting for her from beginning to end.” Alice Oseman, author of Radio Silence
“A tense, psychological thriller that will leave you gasping for air.” Scotsman (Edinburgh)
