That was kinda a crappy description, huh? I'm sorry about that, I just couldn't find a good way to tie it altogether that doesn't give everything away. This was another one of those novels that I requested right when I started reviewing books because it had an interesting cover and it sounded interesting enough. Now my screening process is much stricter. I read the entire description several times, I check Goodreads to see if anyone I follow has read/rated/reviewed it so I have something to go off. I really think and consider what I'm downloaded. In the beginning, though, that is never the case. I think every reviewer can tell you that in the beginning they downloaded nearly anything they could. You, person I don't know, are going to give me access to a book free of charge? All I have to do is leave a review? As long as it sounded mildly good and was in a category I read (ie YA or NA or historical romance), I was all for it. I'm paying for that now because I'm making a point to read through all of them, in that better late than never spirit and get reviews up for them. What sucks is having to write negative reviews. I realize that negative ones help just as much as positive ones, but that doesn't mean I don't feel bad about shooting down some indie authors baby. Speaking of....
Cece was a character that was fine, if somewhat annoying. I feel like her story was so cliched. Teen girl with only one parent with is so affected by a mental illness that she can't bring herself to provide so said teen girl must support them. I think that is part of what irritates me. I don't understand anyone who has a mental illness that doesn't want help. My husband actually is bi-polar, like Cece's mom, and there wasn't a day when he wasn't on medication that he didn't want help. That whole "the side effects aren't worth it" argument just angers me more. There are hundreds of different pills! There are many different choices and options and tons of generic versions for each of them! I know the first set you try isn't going to be a magic set. But you keep freaking trying. Period. I don't understand or sympathize with anyone with a different view than that. Especially someone with a child! LADY! Get off your butt and take care of your kid! Go to a free clinic and get yourself an appointment and work something out. Make it happen! So...maybe it wasn't Cece who irritated me. But she kinda did too because she was so trusting of Hugh. I mean, the audience knows he didn't kill those people, but she has no real proof of that besides the fact that he seems kind. You do realize that sociopaths are usually very charming, right?
Hugh wasn't really any better. I actually am trying to think about how to describe him and I can't. He's a non-person. He is personality-less. He is scared because he doesn't know who he is or where he's from or anything and then he becomes fiercely protective of Cece (oh yes, the dreaded insta-love).
As far as writing, it was written well, but it was a little boring. It was slow and all over the place. I felt like it almost had too much going on. The crazy mom, the forcing Cece into work, the Hugh-alien thing, the conflict with the aliens....just too much for this bitty 200 page novel. And then, the ending just felt forced. Cece's family thing working out the way it did had me screaming "THAT'S NOT HOW REAL LIFE WORKS!"
In a nutshell, this novel was disappointing. The premise was intriguing, but it had no follow through. It felt very unfinished. It also is supposed to be the first book in a trilogy, but there is no word on releasing the next books. That really sucks for anyone out there who genuinely liked the novel because it ends on a cliffhanger.
****Thank you to Katie French Books for providing me with an eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review****
From the beginning, the relationship between Cece and Hugh was well developed (unlike some YA romances that make no sense). I rooted for both characters throughout, which doesn't always happen when I read a book in this genre. Even the side characters were well fleshed out, which is a testament to the author's skills.
I also got a kick out of the pop culture references made in this book. I don't know how much nostalgia other readers will feel when reading Eyes Ever to the Sky, but it really resonated with me.
I'm looking forward to books 2 and 3 in this series!
For the price it is totally worth it!
