Weekend Book Giveaway: These Broken Stars

http://catalog.sno-isle.org/polaris/search/title.aspx?ctx=1.1033.0.0.6&cn=665861This week we have another exciting science fiction book you might already be waiting for,  These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner:

It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone. Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they're worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help. Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other's arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder--would they be better off staying here forever? Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step.


This is the first in a new trilogy (of course), and as I type this there are 17 people to read this.  For a chance to win your own Advanced Readers Copy, tell me the top five qualities you would like in a crash landing companion.

If I was going to be stuck with one other person, qualities I would want them to have would include being intelligent, understanding, athletic, funny and trustworthy.

I love these kind of questions!!!
Okay, first I would want them to be smart, survival rate would be definitely higher, lol
Second, I want them to be HEALTHY, this is very important.
Third, caring, cause I want to be loved.
Fourthly, humorous. I love funny people. That's gotta keep me alive, right?
LASTLY, HONEST. WHAT IF THEY WERE LYING TO ME ABOUT their identity...what if he was a... Murderer? Well I wouldn't want to murder the last person on earth anyway.
