Summary: In the first book of the Queen Anne series, Jacob Harrison, a twelve year old boy aspiring to be a paranormal investigator, attempts to convince his friends, parents, brother, and anybody who will listen, that the boy living next door just might be from another planet.
Join the investigation as Jacob tries to figure out just how the boy next door is moving objects without touching them, why his eyes sometimes look completely black, and what he's here for.
Review: I received this novel from Alex, in exchange for my honest opinion, and I absolutely LOVED this novel. This came as a shock to me, honestly, because if you know me well, you'll know that I never read any books outside of my preferred genre and that I never read novels with main characters younger than the age of 18, but Jacob and his friends seemed so mature for the age of 12. In this novel, we follow the journey as the main character, Jacob Harrison, tries to prove to his best friends that his next door neighbor is in fact an alien. The entire time I was screaming inside of my head every time Jacob ran into an obstacle or when his family and friends tried to make it seem as if he had an active imagination. I thought all of the characters were very well developed and I loved the way Jacob interacted with his family, friends, and even his neighbor. I don't want to spoil anything, but in one part of the novel I could've sworn my theory was going to be right, but maybe I'm the one with the overactive imagination! Overall, I absolutely loved this novel, it was a quick read, it constantly had me on the edge of my seat, and I can't wait to read the next novels in the series to see how everything turns out in Queen Anne. This is definitely a STOP EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING A BUY THIS NOVEL read!
