The middle of nowhere just got a lot more interesting!

Nerdy astronomy geek Marsha, M to her few friends, has never been anybody special. Orphaned as an infant and reluctantly raised by an overly-strict “aunt,” she’s not even sure who she is. M’s dream of someday escaping tiny Jewel, Indiana and making her mark in the world seems impossibly distant until hot new quarterback Rigel inexplicably befriends her. As Rigel turns his back on fawning cheerleaders to spend time with M, strange things start to happen: her acne clears up, her eyesight improves to the point she can ditch her thick glasses, and when they touch, sparks fly—literally! When M digs for a reason, she discovers deep secrets that will change her formerly mundane life forever . . . and expose her to perils she never dreamed of. Yes, the middle of nowhere is getting a lot more interesting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starstruck Hiatt develops the world surrounding this novel so naturally that even the most implausible situation seems not only plausible but completely and utterly possible. I was so wrapped up in this story that I could think of nothing else. At the same time, I had to take a step back, thinking ‘could you just imagine.’ And was my imagination ever running wild. This novel is written in such a manner that it is approachable to a teen audience but also won’t turn off older readers. Hiatt kept me guessing and kept me entertained throughout. You really get to know the main characters in this novel inside and out. It’s quite a revealing experience and makes the novel much more personal for the reader. I also appreciated the fact that the characters were high school students written like high school students. There wasn’t some large discrepancy between what their lives should be and what they are, well, except for the Martian bit. The supporting cast was also quite intriguing. They were all such unique individuals that it made the cast seem like a real community. As a whole, this was a brilliant introduction to the series. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next instalment.
