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 Leihr exchange
student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her
dream college, shell have inside information about the mysterious Leihrs that
every journalist would kill for. Caras blog following is about to skyrocket.
Still, Cara isnt sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and Leihrs have
nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldnt seem more
alien. Shes certain about one thing though: no human boy is this good-looking.
But when Caras classmates get swept up by anti-Leihr paranoia, Midtown High
School suddenly isnt safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Caras 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 isnt just her only friend;
shes 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. Michelle C., you are this weeks lucky winner! Congratulations and enjoy the book!
