This is a true love story and has received tons of glowing reviews. However, sadly, it has only received a couple of reviews for its Romance:
An unlikely pair, the strange Lacy Dawn and her sent-to-Earth android DotCom take the reader on a wildly improbable and sometimes disturbing romp from rural Appalachia to an alien shopping mall as Lacy attempts to save the world, heal her parents, and fall in love.
--Mary Rosenblum, author, THE DRYLANDS, CHIMERA, THE STONE GARDEN, and SYNTHESIS AND OTHER VIRTUAL REALITIES
Coffee Times Romance:
RARITY FROM THE HOLLOW
Lacy Dawn is a teenager with some minor changes in an average life that a normal teenager would not have in real life. She has a dog that can do technical details to improve life as she knows it, and Lacy Dawn has an android boyfriend to boot.
DotCom is the person responsible for the risks Lacy Dawn is willing to take to better her lifestyle. He shares what he knows with Lacy Dawn so that they can have a chance of being together.
But what will it cost DotCom and Lacy Dawn to take their own lives in their hands in order to save two planets?
A unique way to bring two different races together. At first, I was worried that I was not going to be able to like the world Mr. Eggleton had created. But I was surprised that as I read more of the book, the people had a way of touching a part of you that I was not expecting at all. A good read for any lover of satire and science fiction. A well written book.

There is no sex in Rarity, but there are references. If you are interested in refinding true love, like your very first love when a teen, although the romance is not physical, Rarity is a very good place to revisit your first real love, until reality messed everything up.
