Alienated (Alienated, #1) by Melissa Landers
Book Summary:
**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 L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara's classmates get swept up by anti-L'eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn't safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara's 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 isn’t just her only friend; she's 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.**

Trisha | 31440 comments soooo....on the buddy read sign up thread...we talked about changing the date to March 10th.

Is that still okay with everyone?

if we change it, then I'd love to join! If not, I totally understand. I don't want to change your guys' date! Especially if you can read the book early :)


Katie | 2012 comments I would be fine with changing the date. I think March would work better for me anyway.

Amanda (yerawizardamanda) Just got my copy in the mail a few days ago! Haven't started yet because I'm still working on a couple other books. I was thinking of reading it in March, so I'd love to join this. I don't do buddy reads a lot, and i figured it might be fun to have somewhere to talk as I read along!

Mirsada (miri22) | 219 comments Trisha I totally agree with you about these two characters. I am almost done with it, so I'll see how it ends. At first I liked it, but now not sure anymore.
