-- My Thoughts --
Cara is thrilled to host the first ever exchange program between humans and the L'eihrs. But when Aleyx, the cutest alien she has ever seen, arrives, she can't even stand him. And the feeling is mutual. And it seems like a huge group of humans want the L'eihrs off of Earth and out of their lives, and that only fuels more problems.
The idea of this book is more towards the contemporary genre not the science fiction one. It's a story of two teens falling in love, who are not fit for each other but still try to make it work. I would have liked some more world building, because i felt like it was lacking a bit in this aspect. I never fully understood the differences between the aliens and us, but i have to say that I liked the information that was provided.
The romance is sweet , cute but nothing serious. It's the kind of high school romance that you know, might not be forever. I don't know what the author will do with this romance for the future books in the series, but I am hoping that she'll make it more mature and long-lasting. I did like the main characters, not at first, though. I didn't like Cara and Aleyx's arrogant attitude towards each other, but they did grow out of it. So, the character development was really evident.
Although this book is not the best science fiction book out there in the blogging world, but it is interesting, nonetheless. And I know that it has a lot of potential so I am waiting for the author to show us more of this interesting world!
