The Last 8 by Laura Pohl is a 2019 YA Sci-Fi Debut that I am beyond excited to read! To start, it follows a Latina pilot (the Latinx rep. makes me beyond happy)!! 😭✨🛩🌌
The story essentially revolves around the pilot, Clover who finds herself alone after an alien attack, but soon meets a group of survivors who aren’t what they seem!
Ever since it was announced I’d been really looking forward to reading Pohl’s debut and its definitely a must read for me in 2019!!
From the mystery surrounding the plot, the #OwnVoices Latinx/Bi rep., and an overall fascinating story, I cannot wait to read this book!!
Also, The Last 8 gives off a really mysterious, sci-fi audio drama vibe which I am so here for!! 😆✨🎙🛸
As of May 28, the cover + excerpt for The Last 8 was revealed via Barnes & Noble Teen Blog
Here’s a full summary for The Last 8:
A high-stakes survival story about eight teenagers who outlive an alien attack!
Clover Martinez has always been a survivor, which is the only reason she isn’t among the dead when aliens invade and destroy Earth as she knows it.
When Clover hears an inexplicable radio message, she’s shocked to learn there are other survivors—and that they’re all at the former Area 51. When she arrives, she’s greeted by a band of misfits who call themselves The Last Teenagers on Earth.
Only they aren’t the ragtag group of heroes Clover was expecting. The group seems more interested in hiding than fighting back, and Clover starts to wonder if she was better off alone. But then she finds a hidden spaceship, and she doesn’t know what to believe…or who to trust.
