#BookReview: The Last Girl on Earth by Alexandra Blogier #TheLastGirlOnEarth #NetGalley

About the Book: 

Raised among them.>

Li has a father and a sister who love her. A best friend, Mirabae, to share things with. She goes to school and hangs out at the beach and carefully follows the rules. She has to. Everyone she knows--her family, her teachers, her friends--is an alien. And she is the only human left on Earth.

A secret that could end her life.

The Abdoloreans hijacked the planet sixteen years ago, destroying all human life. Li's human-sympathizer father took her in as a baby and has trained her to pass as one of them. The Abdoloreans appear human. But they don't think with human minds or feel with human hearts. And they have special abilities no human could ever have. 

Fit in or die.

When Li meets Ryn, she's swept up in a relationship that could have disastrous consequences. How far will Li go to stay alive? Will she save herself--and in turn, the human race--or will she be the final witness to humanity's destruction?

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Could have been amazing

Notes and Opinions:  This one just didn't work out for me at all and I ended up DNFing it.  I wish the author would have focused more on Li's loneliness about being the last human in the world. This book could have been so epic but as it sits it just didn't work out for me. The instalove was horrible and the story and characters to me felt like they weren't fully formed. 

Go Into This One Knowing: one dimensional characters, instalove
