From School Library Journal
I found this coming of age tale to be enjoyable and full of adventure, all seen through the eyes of youth. The pace was steady, the plot poignant and engaging - though a bit fantastical, and the characters likeable. Through the tale we get to see them grow and mature through their experiences. This was a fun read, and I would definitely recommend. (Betsy Tobin Mags the Bookworm)
This is an amazing sci-fi young adult read and I loved being taken on a fantastic journey! (Lisa Fletcher, Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Tasmania Netgalley)

There were elements of this story that I really loved but there were also some drawbacks that made the story drag. I had difficulty sympathizing with any of the four main characters because they all seemed fairly stereotypical and trope-y. Are all teens so whiny? I almost put the book down at around 47%, but then the aliens showed up and I finally got hooked.
I wish their had been more time in space and less on Earth in this book, because I really enjoyed learning about the Europa creatures and their connection to Earth. I thought they were incredibly interesting and their willingness to help the teens and their world was a new twist. I could see this translating into a really cool film. I wanted more aliens!!!
I'd be interested to see if there is a sequel on the works because although the book doesn't necessarily end on a cliffhanger, it seems to hint that it's just the beginning.
I would recommend this to teens who are interested in scifi and adventure.
I would first like to state that I received this through NetGalley for an honest review. I found this coming of age tale to be enjoyable and full of adventure, all seen through the eyes of youth. The pace was steady, the plot poignant and engaging - though a bit fantastical, and the characters likeable. Through the tale we get to see them grow and mature through their experiences. This was a fun read, and I would definitely recommend.
The story allows our foursome of conflicted teens to look at the human race through the eyes of another species, analyze their own shortcomings and our tendency to use violence to solve conflict. The teens not only learn much about themselves and their families, they take us on a breathtaking ride through the galaxy.
The Last Stop is a story of faith and fostering hope. Fast-paced and at times humorous, The Last Stop is filled with fun details about alien technology that will make you ask for more.
