A "Time" Magazine 100 Best Young Adult Books of All Time Selection "This novel's funny first-person narrative will grab teens (and not just sci-fi fans) with its romance and the screwball special effects." BOOKLIST An AMERICAN BOOKSELLER "Pick of the Lists" Selection A New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age A PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "Flying Start" Selection "Egg's journey to shed her trappings and to confidently inhabit her own character is one readers won't want to miss." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review) "Castellucci's brooding, smart, self-confident narrator gives a . . . warts-and-all glimpse into Hollywood." THE HORN BOOK "A fresh voice that will be immediately appealing to readers." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Meet Egg. Her real name is Victoria Jurgen, but she's renamed herself after the kick-ass heroine of her favorite sci-fi movie, "Terminal Earth." Like her namesake, Egg dresses all in white, colors her eyebrows, and shaves her head. She always knows the right answers, she's always in control, and she's far too busy taking photos for the school paper, meeting with the Science Fiction and Fantasy Club, and hanging out at the "creature shop" with her dad, the special-effects makeup wizard to be bothered with friends, much less members of the opposite sex. As far as Egg is concerned, she's boy proof, and she likes it that way. But then Egg meets a boy named Max, a boy who's smart and funny and creative and cool . . . and happens to like Egg. Could this be the end of the world at least as Egg knows it?"
