Review of Starstuck by S E Anderson

She could barely look after herself. Now, she's looking after the entire planet.

After an incident with a hot-air balloon causes college-dropout Sally Webber to lose her job, she sets off to find direction in her life. Crashing into a teleporting alien, however, is not on her to-do list.

Now she’s on the run from TV-drama-loving aliens, and things are just getting started. Zander won’t stop reeling her into life-or-death situations to save her planet, as he waits for his laser-wielding sister to search the universe for him. Though Sally isn’t quite sure if he wants to save Earth from annihilation, or just quell his curiosity of all things human.

Now she’s got to find lost alien emissaries, as well as a job, and stop the planet from getting incinerated in the process. But with Zander as her roommate, what could possibly go wrong?

My review: 5 stars
I have been following this author for a while and had the chance to pick up a copy of this book. I was expecting a much more serious sci-fi and I have to say I loved what I got. The story is engaging from page one, pulling you into Sally's life and wanting to know more. It's fun, quirky and heart breaking at the same time. I loved this book and have happily picked up the second and third to read as quickly as I can. An amazing story with a world that's so like our own. You fall in love with Sally and Zander almost immediately and want to know everything you can about their lives. Highly recommended for anyone who loves a good, funny sci-fi with some serious parts to it as well.
