I thoroughly enjoyed this alien-invasion tale, written as an essay by the 11-year-old heroine. It breaks rules and it shouldn't work, but it does.

This memoir's extremely interesting - if tragic - situation, and convincing lost-child voice contribute to its appeal.

Why? What was the point of this book, of this story? It seems completely pointless. I gave it every chance, reading all the way through. To each their own, but I'd say this was a waste of time.

“It’s all about our egos. She felt she was on the edge of understanding something important. They could fall in love with fresh, new people, or they could have the courage and humility to tear off some essential layer of themselves and reveal to each other a whole new level of otherness, a level far beyond what sort of music they liked. It seemed to her everyone had too much self-protective pride to truly strip down to their souls in front of their long-term partners.

“...truth be told, if she ever had time to think about it, she wasn't sure if she was even that enthusiastic a fan of God anymore. He seemed to have dropped the ball a long time ago.

“You’ve been here before. It won’t kill you. It feels like you can’t breathe, but you actually are breathing. It feels like you’ll never stop crying, but you actually will.”
