An excellent book - fascinating read. Even if you are not a fan of the sci-fi genre this book will grab your attention. Things advance quickly, stuff happens in every chapter. The writer knows how to get your attention. I am not sure how the author did it but she was able to combine two things which are impossible to combine at first glance – a routine of an ordinary life in the suburbs of Florida and an alien. The story sounds realistic and convincing. Maybe someone will make a movie out of it one day? You never know.
