Let’s Talk!: Alienated by: Melissa Landers

Note: This is one of my first reviews so it may not be that well written…


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.

I really enjoyed this book. I never really read anything with aliens so i’m glad this is my first alien read. The character development was awesome and i’m really excited for the second book.


Okay. This was a good book. Like it was bomb. The character development was very well written. The plot-mm. So unique. I did feel like the relationship was a bit rushed but i’m not a patient person. There was enough drama happiness for me forget about it for a moment and the relationship between Aelyx and Cara just made me a jumpy fangirl. [Aren’t we all] Let’s talk about some parts.

Tori being a B and Diva [ A reasonable B and Diva ]: Okay I was kinda freaking out when Tori said [something like] “It’s between me and him.” I guess it’s kind mean for her to just leave because Tori didn’t like Cara’s friends.

Eric and Tori getting together: NO-just-ju-NO

Aelyx and Cara’s kiss: This part was so special. I love how they got into as a test. It was so funny because Aelyx looked up how to kiss before he did.

Escaping to L’eihr: Ohhh the fight was epic! I never thought would be the big problem. He was going to kill Aelyx. He was going to hurt Cara.

So I thought this book was very exciting from the beginning. We find out Cara has to “babysit” and alien and now I’m just like ” O.O What happens?” That’s what gets readers to keep reading. The suspense. If your story had little to know suspense then it’s going to be very  hard to keep reading.  This book had suspense. part of it was the fact the Aelyx was doing wrong things to earth throughout the book. That just keeps adding to the suspense because we all want to know. The characters were just…different. You’ve got your main character who want to get into college. Then you have the dare-devil best friend. Your quickly getting popular- boyfriend. Then a mysterious person!! [Love interest!!]

This book was so well written and the writer knows exactly what she is doing. The ending!! AHHH. Cara is staying on L’eihr and Aelyx is going back to earth! [ great right when everything was going great for Cara and Aelyx relationship!]

Predictions: Marcus is going to slaughter Aelyx. We will see Tori and Eric. SOMETHING HORRIBLE IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO CARA I CAN FEEL IT.  Tori is definitely going to miss Cara.
