Publisher: Janine Caldwell (25 May 2013)Seventeen-year-old Joanna Murphy has lost faith in her life. Vying for her mom’s attention, she’s resentful of her stepdad’s intrusion to their family. Her best friend, Tommy, has no clue she’s in love with him as he dates girl after girl without noticing how it tortures her. The final kicker, though, is God’s sick joke to make her freakishly tall when everyone knows boys prefer petite girls.
Then in a bizarre accident Joanna meets James, a breathtaking teen who appears to her after an unusual falling star sighting. Suddenly, her dream for an alien encounter becomes all too real. But when she finds her life has been made unrecognizable, she’s forced into an explosive study of the original design for her life that just may have her regretting every wish she ever made.
Cover: Quite a pretty cover. Perfect for the story.
I didn't really enjoy this one.
This is a 'be careful what you for story.
After falling off a roof and being healed by what we assume is an alien for 98% of the freaking story, her life changes. How she wanted it be- changing her body, her stepfather is gone, and her best friend has finally become her boyfriend.
So the story is really about her finding out she didn't want what she thought she wanted. And right at the end we discover the aline that saved and become a friend, isn't really an alien. Oh and there's a bad guy trying to disrupt his mission. That was really a something of nothing sideline.
Over all I found this book really boring. It didn't hook me in in any way at all.
I didn't like Joanna's character at all. I didn't like her attitude towards anything or anyone.
