At first I held off this book, because I thought it was going to be way too weird with the whole alien invasion topic, but it was surprisingly good! It is definitely the kind of book that jumps right into the action, which I always tend to like. I feel like it wasn’t too ‘out there’, and I really liked this book.
By the way, make sure to check out the movie after you read the book…
I give this novel 3.75 stars because although it was pretty good, I just felt this book didn’t quite have it’s own uniqueness. To me it is one of those ‘just ok books’, but slightly a level above that. So maybe this isn’t a must read, but it definitely is something to try sometime, because I think most of you would like it.
John has lives his live on the run, because he is no ordinary teenager, but from an entirely different planet. He is one out of the eight others kids who survived the attack on their home planet, and was able to make it to Earth. John’s enemy, the ones who were responsible for the attack, are still trying to hunt him and the eight others down on Earth.
John has no real home, family, and practically a life, until he arrives in Paradise, Ohio. He starts to make friends, and lead a normal life, but he soon learns that his life on the run may never allow the things and people that could make his life enjoyable. He must make the decision of whether he wants to sacrifice the future of his home planet, or a normal life worth living.
