[DNF Mini-Review] Under Different Stars by Amy A. Bartol

Under Different Stars (Kricket, #1)Under Different Stars
All she wants is a home, but can she find one...UNDER DIFFERENT STARS 

Kricket Hollowell is normally not one to wish upon stars; she believes they’re rarely in her favor. Well versed at dodging caseworkers from Chicago’s foster care system, the past few years on her own have made Kricket an expert at the art of survival and blending in. With her 18th birthday fast approaching, she dreams of the day when she can stop running and find what her heart needs most: a home. 

Trey Allairis hates Earth and doubts that anyone from his world can thrive here. What he’s learning of Kricket and her existence away from her true home only confirms his theory. But, when he and Kricket lie together under the stars of Ethar, counting them all may be easier than letting her go. 

Kyon Ensin’s secrets number the stars; he knows more about Kricket's gifts than anyone and plans to possess her because of them. He also knows she’s more valuable than any fire in the night sky. He’ll move the heavens and align them all in order to make her his own. 

When everything in their world can be broken, will Kricket rely upon love to save her under different stars? 

Although Under Different Stars had an incredible beginning with very likable & overall badass heroine, I would have to say that unfortunately I was not able to finish this one. 

I liked Kricket. Really did. Her ability to be strong & witty no matter what the situation is and actually surviving the world with having to depend on anyone is impressive. But somewhere in between the insta-love, aliens, and overall strange world, I lost interest. So disappointing.
