Review: The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

I had heard some buzz surrounding The Loneliest Girl in the Universe in the lead up to YALC, which had early copies for sale.  I absolutely loved the cover and liked the synopsis well enough.  Science fiction is one of my favourite genres, and I was looking forward to a young adult take.  I made sure to pick up a copy, and it was the first book from my YALC haul that I read.
