#BookReview: Alienated (Alienated #1) by @Melissa_Landers @DisneyHyperion with @EndyOchita

About the Book:

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.

Notes and Opinions:  This book starts out with a bang and ends the same way. The conflict in it was wonderful and I still love it so much.  I wish I would have had this copy of this title when I got to meet Melissa a few years ago. I am very sad that my copy isn't signed.  I hope she comes back to Florida soon so I can meet up with her and get this and hopefully book two (when I get it) signed as well.  

As for the story, this one was so good that this is the second time I have read it.  I love this book so much with the beautiful cover as well as the amazing story. It's beautiful and engaging and just out of this world.  I loved how much humor this book had Cara and Aelyx are a great couple and I really can't wait to see what happens in book two.

If you want a book that will leave you full of emotions as well as making you want to start it all over again when you're done then check this one out! 

Go Into This One Knowing: Aliens!!!!!
