Summary: Katy's life has an out of this world change (literally)! She moves to this small town in West Virginia, with her mom. And her next door neighbors just happen to be two teenagers just like herself. Not to mention that one of them is hot and sexy, Daemon. The rude, arrogent, hot tempered, stubborn... oh but so hot Daemon. All Katy can think about is Daemon and why he is so rude to her, after all they have just met. Turns out Daemon and his sister, Dee, are aliens! Yup aliens! Now Katy has to live with the fact that she has aliens as neighbors, she can't fight her feeling towards Daemon, hide the fact that she knows their secret to everyone, help hide them from evil alians and the Department of Defense. Oh and it is her senior year in high school. 

My review: I love, love, love this book. One of my favorites this year. Jennifer really knows how to make you love each and everyone of these characters. Katy is the shy, good girl who eventually changes her personality to this spunky, brave woman. She is also a blogger, which let me say was so exciting to read. I love how she loves to read books and gets so excited when she gets a new shipment in. Not going to lie this is what enspired me to go back to my own blog. Daemon is just so... well I don't know I love him. I love his many different mood changes. I did want to grab him out of the book and slap him a few times, but then go all googly eyes when he says something sweet. And I can't help but love his relationship with Katy. Their arguements were really funny to read. I was sceptical of this book at first. I mean come on a book about aliens, really. But I was so wrong. I kept picturing aliens as the gross disgustion ones like the ones in movies. Turns out they are not like that at all... well at least not in this book. I was lucky enought to get a signed copy of this book when Jennifer was at a signing in Boonsboro, MD. She is one of the sweetest authors i have ever met. Like I said one of my favorite books of all time. Can't wait for the second one to come out in August of this year.
