First Line Friday: Mothership

Welcome to First Line Friday, where I feature the first line of a book and its information to get you interested in reading whatever the book may be!
This week is:

Mothership by Martin Leicht and Isla Neal
Publication Date: July 10, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Pages: 308

First Line:
"As far as scientists have been able to determine, the primary function of the human coccyx, or tailbone, is to remind us that once upon a time we were all monkeys or something."

Summary: Things look grim when Elvie Nara finds herself knocked up right before her PSAT. To make matters worse, Cole Archer, the too-hot-to-be-human dreamboat co-responsible for her condition, disappears off the face of the planet after hearing the news, and Elvie's father ships her off to the Hanover School for Expecting Teen Mothers — a seriously kitschy cruise liner stuffed with pregnant girls, and circling the planet in low Earth orbit. 
But the cherry on this drama sundae? Three weeks before Elvie's due date, the ship is attacked. By dudes with ray guns. And one of those dudes just happens to be Cole Archer. Talk about awkward.
Cole tells Elvie that the Hanover teachers are aliens (um, okay) and that she has to evacuate the ship to save her unborn baby from their nefarious plans. But just how did Cole — who doesn't know a driveshaft from a windshield wiper — end up as a badass alien-fighting commando? And why on Earth should Elvie trust him?
