The story line intrigued me: Post Alien Invasion America as told by a teenager. I found the lead character to be believable and not over the top like most adults write teenage girls. Her family is complex, each a well thought out individual. She has some truly funny moments and you do laugh with her.
There were too problems with this book I couldn't get over. It's like reading someone retelling a story from memory and they can't remember the climax or how it ends. You never find out WHY the Aliens came. It wasn't even clear which race of aliens was in charge or why the topography of earth was shifting. The descriptions of the races were vague and I couldn't get a clear sense of who started the plague or what it even did.
In the end, I stuck it out because I was hoping for more. Instead, the last hour wrapped up the main storyline quickly - still leaving all my questions unanswered and no real resolution for anyone.
The performance was good, the teenagers had clear voices but the adults got confusing as more characters were added. We never really get distinct voices for the aliens and that made understanding who was talking more difficult.
