Living in isolation with a robot on what appears to be an alien world populated with bizarre life forms, a twelve-year-old human girl called Eva Nine sets out on a journey to find others like her. You really have to read this book!

I love this book! It might seem kinda confusing at first, but that’s JUST how I like books. It takes place in the future, and it’s about this girl named Eva who’s raised by a robot. She’s the last human being on earth and finds a picture frame of a family, which she calls a Wondla. She tries to find a Wondla, and it’s all about her crazy adventures to find the Wondla in insane alien worlds!
