Fonda's Lee novel, Exo, is suitable for middle grade fans of science fiction. Exo begins with a promising premise, however, it sadly does not live up to its full potential. In Donovan Reye's world, humans and aliens work together to establish a set community. Despite this coexistence, aliens reign supreme. This causes conflict between groups of humans, torn between wanting to continue their coexistence and others who want to return to a civilization without aliens. Donovan soon gets caught up in a battle between the two groups of humans, and he must choose which side is right. This book alternated between being too slow paced and too fast paced. In addition, other key points such as the romance, seemed very forced and rushed. Furthermore, side characters lacked depth and development. I felt like I was unable to relate to the main character, Donovan, due to an emotional disconnection between him and readers. I would recommend this book to fans of other science fiction novels such as The Maze Runner series by James Dashner.

Full of action, with a great premise! An alien invasion story where the humans just might be the bad guys. I loved the description of the aliens and the exocel technology was particularly cool! A great choice for reluctant teen readers!
