The Blurb

Lacy Dawn’s father relives the Gulf War, her mother’s teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage — an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It’s up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn’t mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire. A Children’s Story. For Adults.

The Review
Thank you to author Robert for sending me a copy of Rarity of the Hollow to read and review.

Lacy Dawn likes to live in her imagination and becomes infatuated with her futuristic “boyfriend”, DotCom. DotCom is an android and asks Lacy to prevent the destruction of his “planet”. Many other reviewers have expressed the similarities between this novel and the Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, I’ll let you make that choice because I’ve never read the Hitchhikers guide (bad I know) but I definitely would like to know!

Lucy too has a friend called Faith who has a similar family situation but sadly dies at the hands of abuse – quite shocking.

The main issue that becomes apparent is child abuse, a sad topic to consider, but one that needs to be highlighted. The book does contain descriptions of uncomfortable situations, so aid with caution. However, I do think the issues need to be discussed – you just need to think this is a work of fiction.
