Publisher's Summary

He's not like other guys.  

Liz has seen him around school. It's hard to miss Max - the tall, blond, blue-eyed senior stands out among all the other students at Roswell High. So why is he such a loner?  

Max is in love with Liz. He loves the way her eyes light up when she laughs and the way her long, black hair moves when she turns her head. Most of all, he loves to imagine what it would be like to kiss her.  

But he knows he can't get too close. He can't risk her discovering the truth about who he is - or what he is....

Because the truth could kill her.

The reader ruined it for me.

I'm a huge fan of all things Roswell. But not this audiobook. Granted, the book is different from the tv series in integral ways that were distracting for me, attached as I am to those actors' portrayals. But I still could have rolled with it were it not for the fact that the reader ruined it. I don't know where they found this guy when there are more than enough actually competent readers who, no doubt, would welcome the gig. This guy sounded like a 4th grade boy reading his book report. My ears were insulted. I felt myself constantly mimicking him sarcastically, which probably made several people on the street consider me a crazy person. Do yourself a favor, stream the 1999 series on Hulu. Or just read the book. You'll get much more pleasure out of that.

awesome

I loved the TV series that the book is based off of and it was interesting to get a different perspective on the characters that I already are familiar with. the book was great!
