Summary

The most haunting thriller you'll read all year. 

The Girl with All the Gifts meets The Body Snatchers meets The Village of the Damned.   

"Tomorrow Rose can be a monster again, to quench the green men's thirst for something to hate. For now, however, she's satisfied just being a happy little girl, loving the rain, even if the raindrops will soon turn to blood."    

Humanity's only thread of hope is a young girl named Rose. 

Is she the promise to a cure or the key to ultimate destruction?   

Based on a true event.   

On February 24, 1942, the Battle of Los Angeles began when the 37th Coastal Artillery Brigade opened fire on a spacecraft of alien origin. This is one account of what transpired in the days to follow. 

This is the complete first book in The Girl Who's Made of Leaves series.  

The Girl Who's Made of Leaves is postapocalyptic science fiction that will appeal to lovers of paranormal, Gothic literature, dark fantasy, science fiction, aliens, sci fi military, horror, historical fiction, young adult, teen, and the supernatural.

This book has a twist!

This book reminded me so much of The Girl with all the Gifts. However, there is a major twist in it that you dont even see coming. That revives the story and makes you want to know what will happen.

A future classic

The Girl who's made of Leaves. .
This book transcends at least 3 genres - Dystopian, Sci-fi and Alternative history.
It will probably become a classic read.
It is a complex plot with strange characters who struggle to survive the aliens.
1st class narration.

Excellent story! Excellent Narration!

I love a good science fiction story!! When you combine a good world-build with awesome and flawed characters, along with excellent narration, then the sci-fi book gods are indeed pleased.

It was such a thrill listening to this book! You know but you don't know what's happening. As the reader/listener, you are learning just as Rose, the main character, learns. This is a beautifully well-written ad suspenseful story.

I can't say enough about the awesomeness of the narrator. Kline and Romero combined to make one heck of a great listen!

Give it a chance...

It took a minute for this book to draw me in. In fact, I restarted it after a few chapters twice because it lost my attention and I had no clue what was going on. Once I gave it my full attention, I really enjoyed it. Sierra Kline did an amazing job with the narration. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Spreads itself a bit too thin to remain memorable.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really wanted to like this book but it tears itself down by trying to do too many things at once. Without spoiling the plot, there's at least five different types of horror story trying to happen here and often it feels like the book wants to be an anthology rather than a continuous narrative. Many of the chapters don't connect together cleanly and feel like they could be interchangeable save for the first and last. On a positive note, the narration is excellent and some of the prose is nicely evocative, especially in the chapters that don't involve some sort of combat.
