Book Review: Nowhere on Earth by Nick Lake

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Goodreads summary:

Sixteen-year-old Emily is on the run. Between her parents and the trouble she’s recently gotten into at school, she has more than enough reason to get away. But when she finds a little boy named Aidan wandering in the woods, she knows she needs to help him find his way home. But getting home is no easy matter, especially when Emily finds out that Aidan isn’t even from Earth. When their plane crashes into the side of a snowy mountain, it’s up to Emily to ensure Aidan and their pilot, Bob, make it off the mountain alive. Pursued by government forces who want to capture Aidan, the unlikely team of three trek across the freezing landscape, learning more about each other, and about life, than they ever thought possible.

This book is full of action, adventure, emotion, and aliens! 👽🛸

At the beginning, this book grabbed my attention but was also way different than what I was expecting. By the 40% mark, I was making notes for myself about how odd it was. I did not expect this story to involve aliens. If I had known, I don’t believe I would have requested to read and review it. The goodreads summary was pretty short and really didn’t provide much info. I must have misread the part about them being chased by government authorities or I might have clued into it involving extraterrestrial elements. 

With that being said, I ended up really liking this book! The author did a good job with the characters and their personalities. Even though the storyline was not what I expected, I found myself wanting to hurry up and finish the book to find out what happened. 

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys sci-fi books or has wanted to try the genre. This book had an awesome story and flowed well. It was a quick read for me (I finished it in 2 days) because I couldn’t put it down. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it was not one that I could see myself re-reading in the future or wanting to recommend to everyone I see and talk to.
