Victoria, who insists on being called Egg after the heroine in her favorite sci-fi movie, is going to high school in Hollywood, living with her mostly out-of-work actor mother, and spending her free time working in her dad’s special effects shop. She’s definitely a loner and does her best to make herself “boy proof” and distant from other students. And then, of course, there’s a boy, one who manages to intrigue Egg even after she decides to take an instant dislike to him. Egg was a fun, prickly character – I alternately wanted to hang out with her and to slap her. It does seem as if too much is crammed into too short of a book, and the ending feels really abrupt and rushed. Overall, though, I liked this one quite a bit and it’s definitely got me interested to read more of Castellucci.
