Summary: Two space age teenagers land on a mysterious, seemingly uninhabited planet after their spaceship city crashes. As they work to survive and hope for rescue, they realize they may not be the only sentient beings on the planet.
What I Thought: Though I read a decent amount of young adult fiction, I am incredibly picky about it. Whether my high standards are a reflection on my own tastes or on the perceived low standards within the genre, I'll leave that to your own determination.
I wanted to like this book. I really did. I didn't dislike it. Mostly, I just felt befuddled by it.
The premise is pretty basic: rich, popular girl gets stranded with plebeian army guy. Their deserted
island planet turns out to be hiding more than a few secrets. Lilac and Tarver (yeah, that's his name) slowly realize that there are other beings on the planet, beings nearly unimaginable to the human mind.
