For fourteen-year-old Chloe, planet hopping is a gift. Righting the wrongs of the multiverse on behalf of a mysterious life form is a privilege. Leading a double life has its perks. Being Earth-born, however, simply bites. Chloe knows she will never fit in when high school starts; that’s a given. It’s not like she can reveal her true self and her unusual abilities on Earth anyway. She used to be okay with that, as long as her two best friends were part of her extraterrestrial life, understanding her the way nobody else could. That was before those friends vanished. That was before some jerk displayed her underwear on his head. Now two-thirds short of feeling whole, Chloe becomes an enemy to herself just as a terrifying nemesis threatens to resurface. Can she fight through weakened skills, fearsome flashbacks, and evolving relationships to meet her future head on? Does it really matter what world you’re on when trying to find yourself?

Goodreads Summary

Chloe is the main character in this novel and not quite like the rest of humanity.  She attends high school, but she feels like she is always on the outside looking in, not connected to the rest of her peers.  She understands more than the average human and knows so much more about the universe.  When she thinks about it, she doesn't know why she likes or helps the human race...leading to an intriguing story the reader may find hard to put down. 

As far as science fiction goes, the author does not throw too much information at the reader.  The reader will not be overly confused and will be able to follow the story without checking back too much.  The author does use different terms that are exclusive to the book, they are not hard to pick up though.  The reader will enjoy getting to know Chloe and her friends as they navigate the different issues the book explores.  The events are relatively fast-paced, the reader will keep turning the pages to see what happens next.  The author's way of writing is smooth and will keep the reader interested in the plot.  This book is great for young adult/teen readers.
