I found this book held up upon reading it a second time, in fact, I may have even liked it better. I do want to see the movie (although I may wait for it to hit the dollar theater) and I just put the sequel, "Infinite Sea" on hold. I'm not a huge alien fan (unless it's the X-Files), but this teen novel does a damn good job. With the young adult market saturated with paranormal romance and vampires and dystopias, it's refreshing to read something different. This book will appeal to both boys and girls, as it features alternating narrators. A great alien read!
