Publisher's Summary

Victoria Jurgen, who goes by the name "Egg" after her favorite sci-fi heroine, doesn't have many friends, and definitely doesn't turn the heads of any boys. But she likes it that way. That is until she meets Max, a new kid who might be the only one to really understand her.

What the Critics Say

"An unusual, successful, appealing effort from first-time novelist Cecil Castellucci." (Kirkus Reviews)
"But this first novel's clipped, funny, first-person, present-tense narrative will grab teens (and not just sf fans) with its romance and the screwball special effects, and with the story of an outsider's struggle both to belong and to be true to herself." (Booklist)

    "That Narration Though..."

    The book has a wonderful storyline for teens, but the narration failed to capture the characters' personalities at times. I don't mind when a narrator doesn't want to do voices for each character. But Carine goes back and forth between doing a different voice and not doing a different voice for some characters. It was frustrating in the sense that I couldn't listen to this book and do anything else, because I had to concentrate more to figure out who was talking at times. I had to rewind the book to replay some parts, because where one character was previously pretrade by a certain voice, suddenly their speaking lines were just Carine reading. Oh well. Still a good story.
