My Love Life and the Apocalypse (Paperback)Melissa Welliver (author)
Startlingly original and absolutely irresistible, Welliver's sci-fi romcom set in a future New York devoid of humans centres on the burgeoning relationship between a highly developed bot and a girl who has just crashed to Earth.
Humans have gone and cities are empty, looked after by bots. But not all robots are machines. Echo is part-human, his heart ruled by an unreliable E-Mote chip which means he's pretty much a normal boy surviving on canned beans.
Living his best life. Then a space-pod crash-lands in his neighbourhood with a girl on board. Pandora.
She's his last hope, and apparently he's hers - if they really are all that's left alive ... A highly original and uplifting YA love story/science fiction mash-up with a slow-burn romance Set in an abandoned but fully maintained New York City where the characters live out all our empty mall dreams A thrilling adventure with plenty of unexpected twists and turns - and a dash of darkness YA readers will love Echo's vintage 90s-00s culture obsession!
