My Alien was written by Robin Martin and published by Bennet Lane Press in 2016.
Martin writes about the conflict between doing what’s right and peer pressure. Zoe wanted to hang out with her friends at unsupervised parties and eat junk food but her alien pressured her to do what was right.
Zoe is the main character in this story. She had just broken into the popular group and started making headway with her crush when an alien decided to inhabit her. At first she tries as hard as she could to get rid of the alien but eventually they become friends.
Orion is the alias the alien adopts because Orion is his home constellation. I’m not going to talk too much about Rion because that would lead to major spoilers.
Jas is Zoe’s “best” friend. She’s the most popular girl in school so Zoe becomes popular by association. She’s not a very good friend though and with the help of Rion Zoe begins to realize that.
Harry has been friend with Zoe since kindergarten. Zoe always thought they were just friends but Harry wants to be more than that. Things get awkward between them quick.
The climax of this book was when Orion realized he would either have to leave Zoe for ever of stay a human.
I really enjoyed this book. The plot was cohesive and it left you on kind of a cliff-hanger that makes you want to read the next book. I would definitely recommend this book and am looking forward to the sequel.
