Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake. So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave? Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Alienated to be better than the print version?

Yes I always like audio better than print.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What does Madeleine Lambert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there. At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life. When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war.

What made the experience of listening to After the End the most enjoyable?

This was a big surprise for me. Once I read and heard the storyline I was very captivated from the moment I started to listen to the first 5 min. So I thought I have a credit I am going to try it. Well , 9 hours later I realized that I read it straight through and could not put it down. Now I haven't ever written a review before but, I had to with this book. It has such a great storyline and the plot is amazing. The constant adventure was invigorating. I thought I had it figured out but the twist and turns were keeping me on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed the main character Juno so much. She is so brave and yet so sheltered by what her who life was about.

What other book might you compare After the End to and why?

Divergent, Agenda 21, These books all have that what if we did this instead of how we really live. The idea of what can happen when you experiment on humans. Like we become the lab rat.I like to hear how other people think about what life would be like if we did this .

What about Emily Rankin and Graham Hamilton ’s performance did you like?

I am a very avid Audio Book reader, reading about 3 to 4 a week. I think they did an excellent job and sometimes this is hard to find.I like the fact that they used two people to share a storyline not a man trying to sound like a girl or a girl trying to sound like a man . I dislike this as a practice.They did it just right.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I saw the book and gave it a chance and I couldn't put it down.I never herd of Amy Plum the author before this.

Any additional comments?

I was upset how the book ended. I really hope it doesn't take too long to write the second book. I know I will definitely be waiting for it. It's not a bad ending but I just wanted more.
