From a Distant Star by Karen McQuestion
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Summary from GoodReads
Emma was the only one who hadn’t given up on her boyfriend, Lucas.
Everyone else—his family, his friends, his doctors—was convinced that
any moment could be his last. So when Lucas miraculously returns from
the brink of death, Emma thinks her prayers have been answered.
the surprised town rejoices, Emma begins to question whether Lucas is
the same boy she’s always known. When she finds an unidentifiable object
on his family’s farm—and government agents come to claim it—she begins
to suspect that nothing is what it seems. Emma’s out-of-this-world
discovery may be the key to setting things right, but only if she and
Lucas can evade the agents who are after what they have. With all her
hopes and dreams on the line, Emma sets out to save the boy she loves.
And with a little help from a distant star, she might just have a chance
at making those dreams come true.

I recieved an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
Aliens, space and adventure as a nice mix on my sci-fi reads. "From a Distant Star" was a quick, action-pced and emotional read with a nice covers and beautiful imagination. Although, it followed the know pattern of possesed boyfriend where girlfrined in question tries to save him, I was surprised by the writing.
We have two POVs: one for Emma and one for Scout. There is a great explanation on the ways of space and quite an interesting prologue. I got to see men in black, Emma trying to do anything to save the boy she loves, which happens to be the one-of-the-kind romances. She is strong and despite the emotional turmoil she suffers and the idiotic parents of her boyfriend, she does everything along with Eric Lucas's brother in order to help him... and the alien.
A nice read, recommended despite the well known plot.
