I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review. 

 

Summary from Goodreads: 

Raised among them.>

Li has a father and a sister who love her. A best friend, Mirabae, to share things with. She goes to school and hangs out at the beach and carefully follows the rules. She has to. Everyone she knows–her family, her teachers, her friends–is an alien. And she is the only human left on Earth.

A secret that could end her life.

The Abdoloreans hijacked the planet sixteen years ago, destroying all human life. Li’s human-sympathizer father took her in as a baby and has trained her to pass as one of them. The Abdoloreans appear human. But they don’t think with human minds or feel with human hearts. And they have special abilities no human could ever have.

Fit in or die.

When Li meets Ryn, she’s swept up in a relationship that could have disastrous consequences. How far will Li go to stay alive? Will she save herself–and in turn, the human race–or will she be the final witness to humanity’s destruction?

 

I was definitely surprised by how much i had enjoyed this one. I honestly wasn’t sure about this book at first but once I got into it, I really enjoyed it. There were some things in the story that I was surprised by and felt that they had come in without an explanation and there could also been some things that could have been explained more than they were. I did really like the characters, though there does seem to be instalove between the characters though. I really liked that the story kept me interested from the first page and for most of the book. I do hope there is a second book though as there are still some things that I am curious about. It was definitely shorter than I thought it would be even though it could be a little longer than it was but I liked that it was a fast read.

Final conclusion: Overall I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would even though there were some things that could have been explained more than they were and there was some instalove but I thought the story was very interesting and a fast read. I would recommend this one.
