I didn’t enjoy this book I’m afraid. I found the characters very unlikeable, the plot was very slow paced which I wasn’t expecting at all, the split between POVs was so uneven and frustrating.

I was going to rate this a 4 but then it went up to a 4.5 because that ending though! Just put me on a rollercoaster that never ends, because that is how I feel right now.

Zero repeat forever is about an alien invasion. Raven and her group of friends are misfits and delinquents on a camping trip when the invasion starts. We get the story from Raven and one of the Naxh soldiers, Eighth. This books starts kind of slow, it took me ages to want to keep reading it if that makes sense. It does a good job of scene setting and character building so it's not a bad thing but I didn't really get hooked until Raven and Eighth met up. Raven spends the majority of the book hating Eighth before coming to the realisation that he hasn't asked for this war either. She learns how to sign so they can talk and his enjoyment at the simplest things like snow is adorable and...
