Seventeen-year-old Emma was the only one who hadn’t given up on her boyfriend, Lucas. Everyone else—his family, his friends, his doctors—was convinced that any moment could be his last. So when Lucas miraculously returns from the brink of death, Emma thinks her prayers have been answered.
As the surprised town rejoices, Emma begins to question whether Lucas is the same boy she’s always known. When she finds an unidentifiable object on his family’s farm—and government agents come to claim it—she begins to suspect that nothing is what it seems. Emma’s out-of-this-world discovery may be the key to setting things right, but only if she and Lucas can evade the agents who are after what they have. With all her hopes and dreams on the line, Emma sets out to save the boy she loves. And with a little help from a distant star, she might just have a chance at making those dreams come true.
Review by Lissa
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review thanks to the Publisher and NetGalley.
I haven't really read many Alien themed books. But I actually really liked this one. It kind of begs the question, what would you do to save someone you love?
Emma loves Lucas with everything she has. I think she would give up everything just so he would live. It's always sad and unfair when someone has Cancer. You try to live but it gets taken away. All your hopes, your dreams gone. She prays and begs but comes up with a way to bring him back. But she doesn't realize how different he'll be and why.
Emma starts to understand, what's happening. With the help of Lucas's brother. They set out on an adventure to save both of them. The interesting thing is, even though this alien came here but had no feeling. He left with it. He didn't want to hurt anyone, he just wanted to be safe. He wanted to get home and be with the one he loved.
This is a story about love, about being courageous and going with your gut. When you feel like the world is ending, you are left with hope. This is a good Young Adult/Alien novel. I think McQueen has made a world that we can all relate too
