Overview

Treehugger is Book One in the Based on a Dream series:

Planet-hopping is a gift. Righting the wrongs of the multiverse on behalf of a mysterious life form is a privilege. Leading a secretive double life has its perks. Being Earthborn? Well, that simply bites.
When Chloe (aka Star of Earth) dares to shake off her bullied past to try fitting in at an A-list slumber party, her sleeping bag is the least of her baggage. Unfortunately, more ridicule only reinforces her belief that she'll never blend in on Earth, no matter how well she hides her double life, alien-influenced quirks, and devastation over the disappearance of her best friends. At least when they were in her life, public humiliation on her homeworld didn't throw her as much. Their friendship had meant everything.
Symbiont-aided abilities slipping, Chloe becomes an enemy to herself just as a terrifying nemesis threatens to resurface. Can she navigate evolving relationships and old nightmares in time to rescue her legendary reputation as an evil-thrashing sentinel? Does it really matter what world you are on when trying to find yourself--especially when a lunatic is trying to find you first?

Editorial Reviews

AwkwardGeeks.com - Lynn S.
Smartly written, entertaining, and a great read for anyone who loves science fiction. It may be a young adult novel, but I believe geek girls of any age will be able to enjoy, and appreciate this book
Barnes & Noble - MNM2 M
This book is not only heartwarming but fun
the story takes you to another world ..another dimension..and holds you there to the point where you think your in that world for real.. Someone should make this into a movie..
PureGeekery.net - Claire R
Alwang directly taps in to the loneliness of the teen years and the importance of surrounding yourself with good people. I would recommend this series not only to young adult readers, but adults who want to get back in touch with their more adventurous selves.
Maureen D.
Kea Alwang's writing style made the entire adventure wholly believable, fun (or gut-wrenching, but really, there's a review for another day), and allowed the characters to linger long after you close the book for the moment or for the last time. The amount of detail in the worlds and characters give them an almost nostalgic quality while also creating places that I would have never thought of--and put a new twist on the old theme of teenage isolation and resistance to change.

Meet the Author

Kea Alwang lives in New Jersey building worlds, reading, and indulging in severe caffeine and chocolate addictions. Her podcaster husband, film-obsessed son, book-munching daughter, and self-absorbed parakeet are among those who put up with her unnatural attachment to the keyboard. Despite creating characters who can't wait to leave this planet, she actually loves the Earth, but wishes bullies and the word moist would just disappear.

    Great book for all

    Let me start by saying this genre is not usually one I would read from, however I really loved Treehugger. From the very beginning I felt a strong connection to the main character and could empathize with her feels and situation. As the book progresses the development of all the characters was spectacular. The author has great insight into not only the human mind but wildly of those not of this planet. Highly recomend this book to all not just young adult.

    I also agree with an earlier post this book would make an awesome movie!

    Live To Read

    Chloe is the main character in this novel and not quite like the rest of humanity. She attends high school, but she feels like she is always on the outside looking in, not connected to the rest of her peers. She understands more than the average human and knows so much more about the universe. When she thinks about it, she doesn't know why she likes or helps the human race...leading to an intriguing story the reader may find hard to put down.



    As far as science fiction goes, the author does not throw too much information at the reader. The reader will not be overly confused and will be able to follow the story without checking back too much. The author does use different terms that are exclusive to the book, they are not hard to pick up though. The reader will enjoy getting to know Chloe and her friends as they navigate the different issues the book explores. The events are relatively fast-paced, the reader will keep turning the pages to see what happens next. The author's way of writing is smooth and will keep the reader interested in the plot. This book is great for young adult/teen readers.
