****I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.****

Fear Me Not is the first book I've read by Sara Wolf and was as fabulous as I've heard many readers describe her books to be. I'm drawn to YA stories with aliens though I haven't read many, and this story was entertaining and engaging - I flew through it in one sitting.

Victoria hates the aliens, who have been nicknamed "Gutters" since their source of food comes from human emotions collected in an organ implanted in, well, your gut. She's been implanted with one in exchange for money which will help improve her family's quality of life. Her mother died at a rally protesting the Gutters, and Victoria's hatred for the Gutters stems from her grief over losing her mother, which was understandable to me. I can't imagine how I would feel if aliens landed right here right now.

The way the government handles the precarious relationship between humans and Gutters was realistic in my opinion. I could just see the government jumping all over themselves trying to convince us these aliens are harmless when it would be impossible to know they can be trusted 100%. Even though it's been eleven years without attacks, I still would be leery.

I don't come across books too often with such beautiful writing. I don't know how else to describe it. The writing drew me in to the story, and I was so completely engrossed in what I was reading, I forgot they were words on a page. They became more than that to me; I was just that present in the story.

The interactions between Victoria and her Gutter partner, Shadus, were hilarious and snarky. It was rewarding to see their walls begin to crumble.

I discovered this wonderful novel by Sara Wolf and encourage you to all discover it as well.

Fear Me Not follow Victoria [Vic] and her experiences at the first boarding school that will educate both human teens and Gutter [Alien] teens. The Gutters have been living on earth for eleven years now and have a very particular diet- human emotions. In order to feed off their emotions, select human volunteers have an organ implanted in them that will convert their emotions into something tangible that the Gutters can eat. All the humans at this boarding school are EVEs [the volunteers with the special organ] including Vic.

As you can imagine, not everyone is happy about mixing Gutters and humans together and people are even less happy when relationships [be it friendship or romantic] begin to form between the two groups.

Vic is an EVE to earn money so that her sister can be treated for her really bad asthma. Her driving force for staying at the school is that they're giving her 100,000 dollars for being an EVE and she can't afford to turn that down when it could save her sister. So she sucks it up… even if she hates the aliens.
Thing is… it's not long before she finds out that the Gutters aren't all that different from her, actually some of them are really cool.
Raine is Vic's roommate. She's a gutter and a model and she'e essentially Gutter royalty. It takes a while for Vic to warm up to her roommate but she soon finds that there's more to Raine than what appears on the outside to be a shallow, fashion obsessed girl. I really liked Raine, but I wish- and this is something I feel about every character that isn't Vic- I wish we got to know her better.

I didn't even know about this book until one of my favorite author rated it on Goodreads, imagined my surprised that Ms Sara Wolf published a Young Adult book about Aliens! Since I am both fan of boarding school novels and Ms Wolf's writing, I had a rather high expectation for this book. It didn't disappoint.

This book was solid, and the plot twist was just fantastic. At first glance Fear Me Not may seem like another typical Young Adult boarding school story, just replace the Paranormal aspect with Sci-Fi. But trust me it was anything but typical. I cannot begin to tell you how much I like this book and how it was constructed. It has variety of elements from different genre, and it's full of surprises and conspiracies. Once I begin to read, I didn't want the book to end.

I thought the concept of this book was quite unique, in Fear Me Not the food sources of the Aliens were human's emotions. So the Alien doctor/scientist created a foreign organ that can be plant in a human and proceed to gather a human's emotions. Each emotion has different flavor as well, I believe the book said Fear was the Alien's favorite. Though not everyone is genetic compatible with this foreign organ, for those who were they were called EVE.

Many teenagers signed up to become an EVE, and then they were all sent off to this boarding school for both Aliens and Humans. In return every EVE will receive a good amount of money for their experience. When Victoria started her boarding school life with the Aliens, she did not expect to find herself befriend with the Aliens, let along fallen for one, nor she was to find out the hidden purpose for the creation of EVE.
