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.

"A perfect blend of sizzling romance, action, and suspense." (Jennifer L. Armentrout, New York Times best-selling author)
Book addict. Not a quitter!
Most of the time this depends on the narrator. This narrator was good. Her voice is NOT annoying in any way and she does a great job of differentiating between characters. Females sound like females, Males sound like males. The narrator does justice to the banter between Alyx and Cara for sure.
When Alyx and Cara are caught by her father in her bedroom with the door locked. Very funny.
This is a very cute story with developed characters that have pretty entertaining personalities. There is well developed conflict and romance between Cara and Alyx as well as other characters in the book. There are some developed moral issues of racism, sacrifice and forgiveness that play out pretty well. I enjoyed this for sure. This was a win win situation for me. I will definitely buy book two.
Yes I always like audio better than print.
I was captivated by the story in the first 3 minutes . This store grabs you and pulls you in fast. Before I knew it I was on chapter 12. I really like the idea that this could happen to earth one day. The whole idea of aliens coming here in peace. But, what's a store without some excitement and love.
She was a great story teller. I found nothing wrong with the way she choose to use her voice. I was never confused about who was who and I hate when a girl tries to sound like a man or boy and do it terribly.She sounded great with every character.
I just knew from the start that there was going to be a big problem. I was happy to see that as a human we love ,hate, or just have passion. A lesson that people not from earth don't understand. Until they start living with us.
It's a great book I never write reviews but, I thought this book needs to be read by other people because ,it's so good.
