Looking for the perfect Christmas gift? Here’s a Tales Before Bedtime recommended book gift.
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe
Written by Lauren James
Perfect for older KS3, KS4 and above…
CAN YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE YOU’VE NEVER MET, NEVER SPOKEN TO – SOMEONE WHO IS LIGHT YEARS AWAY?
Romy Silvers is the only surviving crew member in a spaceship bound for a new planet. She is the lonelist girl in the universe, until she hears that a second spaceship has launched from Earth, with a single passenger on board. A boy called J.
Their only comminication is via email, and the messages take months to transmit, yet Romy finds herself falling in love. But what does she really know about J? And what do the strange new messages from earth mean? Sometimes, there’s something worse than being alone…
One of my absolute favourites this year. (It was actually published in 2017 though).
