Seventeen-year-old Emma was the only one who hadn't given up on her boyfriend, Lucas. Everyone else - his family, his friends, his doctors - was convinced that any moment could be his last. So when Lucas miraculously returns from the brink of death, Emma thinks her prayers have been answered.
As the surprised town rejoices, Emma begins to question whether Lucas is the same boy she's always known. When she finds an unidentifiable object on his family's farm - and government agents come to claim it - she begins to suspect that nothing is what it seems. Emma's out-of-this-world discovery may be the key to setting things right, but only if she and Lucas can evade the agents who are after what they have. With all her hopes and dreams on the line, Emma sets out to save the boy she loves. And with a little help from a distant star, she might just have a chance at making those dreams come true.

This was a fun ride! I wish I would have noted where I heard about this book. Since it cost $1.99 I would guess someone recommended it to me. Thank you, whoever you are!
This was sci-fi. Not my favorite type which is on other planets or roaming outer space. But it is the next best thing, an alien on this world.
Those who have lost others or have had cancer may find the first part of the book a little triggery as the love interest is dying of cancer. But this holds hope, so stay with it. It gets better.
I was lucky to have a free credit at Audible and could listen to Kate Rudd narrate the story. She is very good at the different character voices. I kind of wish Lucas's voice was a little more distinct from Scout's but there wasn't enough of that voice to worry about. Kate kept the story interesting, I think more interesting than had I read it without Whispersynch.
Get ready because around the middle of the book you won't want to put it down, it gets more and more exciting. And all threads are neatly tied up at the end. Even so, I miss the characters and wish there were more. Maybe more from the alien planet and what happens next there? And maybe a connection happens between the new friends. Maybe Lucas could develop some sort of ability?
But even as a solo book, it was a lot of fun! I gave up binging on another series (TV) because the book was far more interesting. If you get the chance to read this, you should. I think you'll like it.

A 14 year old girl is infatuated with an 18 year old boy alien. Not good sci fi ,simple story. Good for minor children
I picked up this book because it was from Kindle unlimited. I wasn't expecting much. But this was actually a very cute story and I really enjoyed it.
The narrator was good, however she really didn't seem invested in this story like she has been in other books she has done. I really can't blame her. the story line was really good, however the story was dragged out in some scenes way too long.
This book is great! A bit of a teenager bleh monolog is steadily pumping through the main characters head but it's ok, it still was a fantastic read about what it means to be human.
