These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1)These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aboard the luxury spaceliner Icarus, Tarver Merendsen feels out of place among the wealthy and elite. His claim to fame, he is a military hero at the age of 18. One evening in the first class salon, he encounters a beautiful red-head dressed in blue. What starts out as promising soon turns embarrassing when he learns she is Lilac LaRoux, the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver is left feeling even more apart the before. When the Icarus is suddenly pulled out of hyperspace, Tarver and Lilac are thrown together in an escape pod. Landing on the nearest planet, they soon learn they are the only survivors of the crash. Now Tarver must save her and himself against almost unthinkable odds.
If you like the movie Titanic, you will love this book. It is like Titanic-In-Space. The characters are enjoyable and the plot twists abound. It is part of a trilogy so you can expect the story of Tarver and Lilac to continue.
