This book is about an alien girl named Ariel, forced to leave her home planet and her present boyfriend with her father whom has acquired a strange interest in the planet of Earth. Ariel hates this planet with its solid beings and their inability to change into gas or even liquid and attempts to convince her father into leaving, but he cannot, for he has fallen in love with one of those horrid, solid creatures. Now Ariel and the seedling of the one whom her father has swooned over, Megan, must separate their own differences in an endeavor to separate their parents. I found this book extremely interesting. It does accurately describe what goes through a young teen's mind when forced to move and when a stranger threatens to come into the household. I think the author did a good job in changing between first and third person with the changing of narrators. Yes I have seen the movie and it is almost entirely different from the book. I would recommend the book over the movie. Believe me, the book has an extremely better ending. The movie has a cheezy ending ans is drowned in that Disney aura.
