My Review:
I found Alienation to be a fascination young adult novel.  It was fresh and interesting to read.  I will definitely be passing it on to my son to read as well.

I really enjoyed Alienation.  It's fast-paced, easy-to-get-into and has interesting characters.  I liked the setup and liked the fact that event though this is the second book in the series I was able to jump right in and get into the story.  I will go back and read the first book in the series now, but I never felt lost not having read it.

Colt, Oz and Danielle are great characters.  There were things I really liked about all three and I think they are easy-to-relate to characters for teens.  Even though this is set in a different kind of world, I think it still works out great with similar lessons for teens in our normal world.  The alternate world just makes a more fun read.

I don't want to give anything away so go, poick this one up if you want something a little different and a quick enjoyable read.  Teen boys and girls both will enjoy this and I think even tweens will love it.  In fact I will be handing it to my very own tween next.  Probably after I find a copy of Invasion for him to read first (after I read it of course!)

My Rating: 4.5/5.0

About the Book:
After his parents were killed in a car accident, Colt McAllister was drawn into a world he thought only existed in comic books-one where mind control, jet packs, and flying motorcycles don't even scratch the surface.

Along with his best friends Oz and Danielle, Colt is now training at the secret Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural academy. But strange accidents seem to follow him. . . even with the security of the school grounds. What first seems random soon turns deadly. But who is targeting Colt?

As the alien invasions increase in frequency and force, C.H.A.O.S resources are taxed to the limit and they're forced to utilize the new recruits. In the midst of battle, Colt will discover some startling revelations . . . about himself, his friendship with Oz, and why he has been chosen to defeat this alien attack against earth.
