Goodreads synopsis: 

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.

The Cover
     Oh la vache! (Holy cow!) The cover is perfection! I love the whole concept! Half L’eihr and half earth! It's absolutely beautiful! C'est magnifique!

Review: 
     Cara Sweeney is the smartest person in her highschool. She's the valedictorian and she was chosen to be apart of the first L'eihr exchange program. She and 2 other people from earth are chosen to host L'eihr teens, Cara's brother goes back up to L'eihr, and Cara's family hosts a guy named Aelyx.

     Cara's town, Midtown, is swept up in the anti-L'eihr paranoia. Cara's family is tormented by the bigoted and speciest group called HALO. They put the town against the Sweeney family and leave threatening notes in Cara's locker.

 Eventually, Aelyx and Cara have to be escorted around by a guard so no harm comes to them. Aelyx and Care become best friends and eventually it becomes more. They have to work together to keep themselves safe. But, Aelyx is keeping a secret. Cara and Aelyx have to learn to trust each other... 

     This book was so great! I loved it! It was exactly what I needed to get out of my reading slump. :) ..Now I'm in another reading slump..oops haha..

Rating:
     I rate this 5 out of 5 stars! If you love science fiction, paranormal romance, & dystopian books you will love this! Enjoy!

Until later guys,
