For fourteen-year-old Chloe, leading a double life may have its perks, but being Earth-born simply bites. Then again, does it really matter what world you're on when trying to find yourself?
For fourteen-year-old Chloe, planet hopping is a gift. Righting the wrongs of the multiverse on behalf of a mysterious life form is a privilege. Leading a double life has its perks. Being Earth-born, however, simply bites.
Chloe knows she will never fit in when high school starts; that's a given. It's not like she can reveal her true self and her unusual abilities on Earth anyway. She used to be okay with that, as long as her two best friends were part of her extraterrestrial life, understanding her the way nobody else could.
That was before those friends vanished.
That was before some jerk displayed her underwear on his head.
Now two-thirds short of feeling whole, Chloe becomes an enemy to herself just as a terrifying nemesis threatens to resurface. Can she fight through weakened skills, fearsome flashbacks, and evolving relationships to meet her future head on? Does it really matter what world you're on when trying to find yourself?
Wonderful Break from Reality
***** I read this story in less than 24 hours. I could not put it down. The fantasy world I was taken to brings me to a place I wish I could stay. I am 28 years old but totally related to the heroine. I remember feeling out of place ridiculed and isolated as does Chloe on Earth. Her alternate world was her element, my 14 yr old self had many fantasy places. This story is nothing like the Twilight-esque fantasy world many YA authors are creating. This one is a whole other world, literally. Acceptance is something humans crave and sometimes its not on Earth where we may find it. Allow yourself to escape to place where you can be whoever you want to be. I look forward to the next book and I have to say it- George Lucas watch out another visionary is here!
A Joy to Read ... A world I didn't want to leave
***** Jacondor, how I wish I were there.
Treehugger is a well-written book that begs to be savored like a rich chocolate mousse. I couldn't get enough of it, and I'm afraid I've spoiled myself for other books for a while.
Chloe/Star is trying to hold herself together after the disappearance of her friends--and not doing a good job of it. She's 14, leads a double existence, and has been through far worse. But she's not prepared to go it alone. Does she have any hope?
Should become a movie...
***** Great Read..for teenagers and adults alike. This book is not only heartwarming but fun the story takes you to another world ..another dimension..and holds you there to the point where you think your in that world for real. Someone should make this into a movie.
