The Outsider (Roswell High Series #1) by Melinda Metz

He's not like other guys.
Liz has seen him around. It's hard to miss Max -- the tall, blond, blue-eyed senior stands out in her high-school crowd. So why is he such a loner?
Max is in love with Liz. He loves the way her eyes light up when she laughs. And the way her long, black hair moves when she turns her head. Most of all, he loves to imagine what it would be like to kiss her.
But Max knows he can't get too close. He can't let her discover the truth about who he is. Or really, what he is....
Because the truth could kill her.

Being a 90's child I fell in love with the Roswell tv show. Having watched the entire series numerous times it was really hard to not imagine the same actors/actress as these characters - this was actually very easy as there are not many differences between the show and the books. The "Roswell action" starts right away - Liz is shot by a man in her family's restaurant and Max saves her life. Liz finds herself in a whole different type of world. While the Sheriff has way to many questions for her and what really happened, Liz can't help but feel drawn to Max. She is seeing him in a whole new light.... he is an alien and so are Isabel and Michael. With her best friends, it is now Liz's turn to help save Max's life and their possible future together. This was a very fast paced book. The writing is not complicated but yet is enjoyable. Melinda Metz's writing style is simple and provides many different points of views from all the major characters. While this series is not 'earth-shattering', I loved the first book and can not wait to start the second.

The ebook is riddled with glaringly obvious and consistent grammar / spelling mistakes that it took away attention towards the story which was good.

I LOVED this book! It was quite possibly the most enjoyable thing I have ever read. The imagery was incredable and the story was fantastic. This is one that I highly recommend.

118 pages and a ridiculous number of typos. I paid way too much for what I got.

This is a really great book as far as I can see. I've only read up to page 17, but I just can't stop reading!

This book was cute if you like children's/young adult literature, especially if you liked the TV series that was based off the books. This first book in the series is very similar to the first few episodes of the TV series, though I think the two series will diverge from here. This book is most appropriate for young teenaged girls because it is heavy on the romance and light on the science fiction. I read the Nookbook version, which was riddled with horrible typos. It looked like it was transcribed from a hand-written document by someone who doesn't understand English. My guess is that all ebook versions are like this, but I don't know.

I was a huge fan of the show when it first came out. It took me years to come across the books at the library and read the entire series in 2 weeks (I had to work) and I want to read it again. I now own a nook and I'm looking to download the entire book series so that I will always have it. Everyone should know that this is not like the show and that the characters and plot are different. Evjoy everyone!

AT first I didn't really like the series or the book. But my friend just kept bothering me about it and she kept on saying it was a good book. Well I got annyoed and when I went to the library I saw the first Roswell book and to satisfy my friend I read it and to admit it was really good. I really want Liz and MAx (who look really cute) to end up together.

I loved this book because the author showed descriptive information about the characters and setting. As soon as you start reading it you get caught up in the story and before you know it, you're done. I really liked this book and also have the rest of the series
