The Rise of Io (Io #1) by Wesley Chu

A fun read with an unlikely cast of characters.
Ella Patel is certainly not your standard, cookie cutter hero. And Io is also certainly not your run of the mill, ho hum alien. The two of them together make for a fun read for sure! I love the way the author manages to layer each of them, yet contrast their life experiences and desires into a ill fitting whole.
Toss in a rather crappy place to live, in a brutal time, and Hey Presto! We have ourselves a worthy read.
What Ella does not have in physical stature she more than makes up for in chutzpah. And Io is rather depressingly single minded, and yet oblivious to the Mac truck bearing down on her (them).
So yeah, you will need to read both of the books.
