Waiting On Wednesday: Alienated by Melissa Landers

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)

by Melissa Landers

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.

I am not a huge alien fan (except for that Katy Perry song, and this MCFLY song) but I not one to discriminate books, especially not when they sound as drama and romance-filled as this one.
Not to mention that Exchange students are always kind of hot thrilling to be around of.

  5. Not sure how I feel about these lovers from opposing sides when one is an alien-I'm going to need to see some reviews before I decide if I'll give this one a shot.
