it was amazing

THE ALIEN MIND is the sort of book that exhibits the highest potential of two genres: the childrens'/young adult novel and the science fiction novel. It offers a portrait of a believable young protagonist, along with other characters, both child and adult, who we come to care about. Yes, it does deal with an alien-invasion scenario familiar to lovers of the science fiction genre, but one thing about being an SF fan is enjoying these themes while also embracing their variations. No one could ever accuse VL Jennings of being unoriginal or of just phoning it in. Her characters are full of their own life, her situations are gripping, and her command of action and the flow of storytelling are both simply stellar.

I would advise you that if you consider yourself a fan of science fiction and have not introduced yourself to the work of V.L. Jennings, your universe is missing several worlds that will add depth and enjoyment to your life as a reader--and to your childrens' lives as well.
