The Last Girl on Earth by Alexandra Blogier

Published January 23rd 2018 by Delacorte Press
ISBN: 0399552286

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?

This was a book I REALLY wanted to like. I loved the concept of the novel and how unique all the ideas were in this novel. The author truly has an incredible imagination and I applaud her creativity!

One of the main problems I had with this book was the world building. I felt like there were a lot of plot holes and not enough elaboration on how this worked in this world. It all seemed rushed and unexplained. 

The characters in this book were fine, but not very memorable at all.

I also was not a fan of the romance in this novel. The romance was the perfect example of insta-love. I did not feel or understand the connection between the characters. I will admit that there were some cute moments between the characters, but as a whole, the romance did not work for me. The other relationships in this book were also underdeveloped. I would have loved to see the friendships in this story develop more than they did. 

I am sad that I did not enjoy this book! If this sounds like a book that intrigues you, you might want to try it for yourself and form your own opinion! However, this book was just not for me.
