Honestly I thought I would like it. It had a cute premise but right from the start it was a tough sell. First for a top secret base there was no security, no disclosure agreements and not an ounce of probability to the whole thing. As I read it got worse. The dialogs was forced. I often found myself rolling my eyes and praying it would get better. By the time she stole a gun from a "highly trained" top secret government guard I found myself laughing and not for good reasons. I finally threw in the towel when she gave a "lets give 'em hell" speech as a high school student to a group of top officials and alien diplomats when up until that point she had been a nobody.

I thoroughly enjoyed Magan Vernon's debut YA novel, How to Date an Alien! The story was fun and fast-paced, the dialogue between the (mostly) teenaged characters was true and real, and the action scenes -- wow! The author has created a kick-a$$ heroine who isn't afraid of jumping on a space ship (never mind she's never flown one before) to storm off to another planet where her alien boyfriend is being held captive, where even trained professionals were afraid to tread. I could actually picture this book as a movie! It reminded me of Men in Black -- teenage version. Little known to the average human, aliens live among us. Very fun and very engaging. The romance was great too!

This is a fun read, with enjoyable characters and out if this world alien mayhem. The setting is modern day and at times I could completely imagine a world with aliens mingling among us. The friendships and love interests are well worth mentioning, and readers will want to know more of the story after the final chapter. Will there be a sequel? One final note, the alien battles, weopons, and craft are most entertaining and engaging. Well done! And congrats on your debut novel, cheers to many more!

Now I'm not picky about books. I love all sorts of books, even ones a lot of other people don't like. I like everything from Twilight to The Lord of the Rings to The Twelve Caesars to Maximum Ride, and I usually see the good instead of the bad in books. But I could not stand this book! The writing is poor. The characters are wooden. The plot is cliche. Nothing is realistic or believable about this book and, all in all, it was astonishingly childish for something for teens. For example, in one part of the novel, a girl explains to the main character that the universe is basically like one big high school. They end up fighting the big mean queen, whom the main character thinks of in the way she thinks of a high school bully. The main character's inspiring speeches fell flat on their faces. And the romance in this novel made me cringe. It's forced and unrealistic. They don't seem to really care about each other one bit. Yeah, there are lots of action scenes, but they were cheesy and action scenes don't make a good book. In short, this was a disturbingly poorly done and childish novel, and I strongly recommend you find something, anything, else to read.

"Well, for starters, friends should tell their friends when they have a secret alien boyfriend and not lie to them about it."
(Jen, to Alex, in HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN)

I have heard people describe this book as "part Twilight, part Men in Black" and that is EXACTLY what it is (maybe with a teeny bit of Independence Day thrown in near the end). But don't get me wrong - HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN is not just a mashup of these other works. It's entirely its own thing - a delightful, well-paced story with memorable characters (including an extremely hot alien). Thank you to Magan Vernon for introducing me to Ace, my new book boyfriend - the very first alien I have ever found sexy :-)

First, I must comment about how much I love the fact that the ranks of the different alien species and humans are like the same ranks of high school. I definitely think that makes this book more relateable to those of high school age, or ones that haven't been out of high school long. Or hell, even someone like me, who has been out of high school for awhile. It shows you that it's not just humans that act a certain way or treat people a specific way. Ace, who is the alien love interest in this story, happens to be in the highest class, the popular, snobby `I'm better than you' types where humans are just the loners/losers - so you can see just by that how interesting a love story between these two cliques would be.

Alex is a seventeen year old girl living in a small town of Illinois with her younger half brother, mother and step father. She hasn't spoken to her father in seven years, he is in the air force. When an Ivy League school comes to her school interested in her, they notice she doesn't have much to her transcript except amazing grades so she blurts that she'll be doing an internship at an Arizona air force base. Thankfully, her father is able to pull strings and get her registered. Circe is supposed to be just a regular air force base but when Alex gets there, she things are completely not normal. Especially since she is strangled by an old lady who definitely is stronger than what an old woman should be. But have no fear, Ace, one of those popular kids, a Caltian, saves her and she later learns that she's been assigned to work with him.

That's just the beginning of this amazing story. There's a slight love triangle, if you want to consider it that. One of the interns, Gavin, likes Alex but she really doesn't like him back, at least in a romantic sense.
