After all, her extraterrestrial lover is out there somewhere, and the thrilling expanse of outer space beckons."

“Holmes pulls it off again with her absolutely driven Nel. Nothing, from hypothermia to the FBI, is going to stop this girl. Grit, friendship and deciding what to fight for when the future is bleak gives this a surprising emotional oomph to layer over the down-to-earth survival story.
I read it straight through and wanted more.”
-O. E. Tearmann, author of The Hands We’re Given
