Invaded : An Alienated Novel
Cara always knew life on planet L'eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L'eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her. Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L'eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L'eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side. Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L'eihr relations. Humans don't know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx's people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists' multiple attempts on Aelyx's life. The Way clearly needs humans' help but with what? And what will they ask for in return?

4Q 4P J The love story between an alien boy and a human girl continues in this sequel as Cara must stay on the planet L'eihr and Aelyx, her alien beau, resides on Earth, attempting to amend the broken alliance and quell the anti-alien sentiments. The story is told from both teens' perspectives, and they each face acts of prejudice and hate; someone on L'eihr is trying to frame Cara for a crime she did not commit, while an unknown human group attempts to end Aelyx's life. Without each other's support, the two must try to find a way back to each other in one piece. However, there is something suspicious happening on the alien planet that might mean Earth and L'eihr will have to work together. If teens read the first novel in the series, Alienated (Hyperion, 2012/VOYA February 2014), they will enjoy continuing the relationship between Cara and Aelyx, as well as Earth and L'eihr. Educators can use this novel to reinforce figurative language and allusion, as well as elements of a science fiction novel.-Lauren Straub. VOYA"
