Seventeen-year-old Mana has found and rescued her mother, but her work isn't done yet. Her mother may be out of alien hands, but she's in a coma, unable to tell anyone what she knows.

Mana is ready to take action. The only problem? Nobody will let her. Lyle, her best friend and almost-boyfriend (for a minute there, anyway), seems to want nothing to do with hunting aliens,

After the events of Flying, Mana is back, and her situation hasn't improved. Her father is still deceased, her mother is in the hospital, China hasn't answered her texts for days, Seppie is going away to a summer program, Lyle breaks up with her, AND she gets attacked by an alien in the girls bathroom! She escapes with the help of another girl, who gives her a crystal before she dies and tells her to find the others like herself. When Seppie and Lyle are mind contro

Alien books are generally not my thing but I really enjoyed Flying and now Enhanced. Even though Enhanced is a bit more serious, it still maintains the human and camp of the first book.

Mana has some ROUGH stuff going on. Flying left her in a really vulnerable spot and Enhanced drops her right back in and kicks it up a notch. Luckily Mana is up for the challenge, as evidenced by the ending of the book!

Recommend for those who want to dip their toes into sci-fi without going full in.

Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for allowing me to review the E-ARC copy of this novel.

Carrie Jones is an excellent storyteller for young adult novels. I enjoyed to first one very much and have recommended it numerous times to teens. I couldn't wait to read this one when I saw it on Edelweiss so I requested a copy. I like Mana and her friends, but as I started this novel it felt darker. It wasn't as funny as the first one either. It is alot more violent than the first, but violence is i

After reading Flying I couldn't wait for the sequel - always a sign that a book is awesome - and Enhanced does not disappoint. We again meet Mana, who only just recently found out that her life was meant to be bigger than just cheerleading, hanging with her friends, and muddling through high school. With her mother in the hospital and both of her best friends seeming to abandon her, Mana has to decide who she can trust.

Carrie Jones is amazing at writing characters you can relate to, and the stor

Gah! How do you know whom to trust when everyone tells you not to trust anyone?

I liked this, but enjoyed the first one in the series way more. This took me a while to get back into, and even then I wasn't really into it.

Would also recommend the very funny, tongue-in-cheek Bad Taste in Boys by a different Carrie (Carrie Harris), about when zombies threaten to take over a high school.

I liked this one even more than the first. I felt like Mana is growing with each book. The side characters are well-developed and act like real people. I enjoyed this adventure and further exploration of what Mana is. I look forward to more in the series.

I wanted to hear more of Madison Greene. Madison was more compelling in her debut than Mana will ever be. Considering (view spoiler) should speak volumes.

Mana's persistent whining and it's-all-about-me attitude gets turned up to eleven here. Although, it is easy to see why. I mean, the girl has been coddled her whole life Of course she is going to have a fit every time someone 'leaves' her. Or more accurately: isn't bending over backwards to sati

Carrie Jones likes Skinny Cow fudgsicles and potatoes. She does not know how to spell fudgsicles. This has not prevented her from writing books. She lives with her cute family in Maine, but she grew up in Bedford, NH where she once had a séance with cool uber-comedian Sarah Silverman.

The Meyers brothers are from Bedford, too, so you’d think it would make Carrie funnier, coming from Bedford N.H. Ob
