Title: Alienated ( Alienated #1 )
Author: Melissa Landers
Expected publication: February 4th 2014 by Disney Hyperion
Type: Science Fiction
Goodreads: Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.
Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.
Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.
But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.
Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.
Thoughts: So far every Disney/Hyperion book that i have read has be awesome. This book seems no different. The book sounds different then the books that have been coming out lately but still have the things i love. I am all for Science Fiction and a story packed with adventures….and of course a side of romance. I’m a girl, i can’t help but crave some romance. One thing is i don’t like is the cover. It’s just to much going on for me. I’m sure once i read the book i will connect more to it.
Cara already sounds like a character i can relate to and easily fall love with. I am really excited to learn more about Cara and Aelyx ( maybe ship worthy? ). I can’t wait to dig in this one and just get zoned in it. I really hope it’s good. What do you guys think?
