Product Description

Kaila Guidry has always known she is different. After all, her mother insists she hide her hair under a tin foil shield and a wig before leaving the house. When Kaila meets Jordyn Stryker one day at school, she begins to understand the origin of her mother’s seemingly irrational fears.Jordyn Stryker was born and raised far from Earth, a starseed, one of six new students sent undercover to Louisina’s Bush High to learn human ways. When Kaila is pushed to her limit by high school bullying and cruelty, Jordyn steps in and awakens her to a new reality, and to love. Out of loyalty to him, Kaila looks the other way when the real purposes of the starseed begin to unfold.As the horrific plan behind the starseed visit to Earth moves forward, Kaila and Jordyn, caught in an impossible love, must face who they really are and decide where their true loyalties lie."I will gladly give this story 5 stars. It isn't often that I find a new twist on the old sci fi, but Gruder has managed to give it a unique perspective." --Recent Reads"Kaila was very relateable to me, she loved her family but longed to know a sense of normalcy." --Fun With Books"Liz Gruder created in her protagonist a dichotomy of child and woman that I found positively endearing and very entertaining. Kaila is a teenager who conveys the innocence of a sheltered child with her earnestness, compassion and sweetness." --Mommasez"Starseed brings a nice sci-fi flavor with a dash of romance to the genre. Fans of SF in general can enjoy . . .the juicy splashes of science fact and fiction, along with those who would like to dip into the genre pool without being drowned in too much SF too soon. This is a welcome edition to the SFR YA genre." A Writer's Dream“I really liked the story. It caught me off guard and won me over after the first chapter. The main conflict is a personal one for Kalia. Will she embrace her alien side or continue life as a human?” --Pixie Dust Reviews"The concept of starseeds was a big selling point for me. I’ve watched enough Star Trek and sci-fi in my time that this really hooked me. Aliens, who look perfectly normal, and so much like humans they might as well be, are hiding among us. Maybe they’re trying to help us into a Golden Age. Maybe they simply want to watch and learn about us. Or, maybe, they’re here for another, darker reason." --The Forbidden Library
