{Review} Cicada

Summertime for Blair Reynolds and her friends had always been carefree and fun...until the summer they happened upon something that was not human. As they band together in a fight for their lives, Blair's true love becomes something more than human. Something unnatural. And their survival depends entirely upon their ability to keep a secret.
 Wow! I was not expecting a story like this one to come from this small 198 page book. The story starts off with a note asking the reader to keep a secret and if they can then read on, but if not the close the book. This did nothing more than make me more intrigued. Blair is the type of girl that doesn't have any friends her own age, but always hangs out with her older brother and his friends. I can relate to this in the fact that I don’t have many friends my same age either. I thought that it was really cool and sweet that her brother did not mind including her in his “group”. Blair is the narrator of this story and I immediately liked her from the beginning. I felt liked we clicked. Basically this is an adrenaline packed story about aliens in a small Texas town. It boarded on a little bit of a thriller side to me and it made sure to keep me on the edge of my seat. I am not a huge fan of thriller, but this was just enough for me. I think that Belle did a marvelous job in crafting this story and she definitely is an author that I will make sure to keep on my radar for future reads :]
