Overview

For one fourteen-year-old Earth girl, REM--the stage of sleep in which we dream--is not quite the same thing.

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?

    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.
