Summary: (from goodreads) For elite extraterrestrial pilot EBN-Reyoz-X, awaiting rescue while hiding out in a trailer park in Lancaster, California, is a grueling nightmare. She’s injured, lacks proper supplies and can’t blend in with the indigenous population because she’s seven feet tall and can’t control the trail of wildflowers blooming in the wake of her footsteps. She’s unprepared to begin sexual maturity in the alien land and when she develops feelings for Shale, the mute teenage boy next door, she’s convinced circumstances can get no worse.

Except rescue never comes and once word spreads that her touch holds miraculous healing abilities, EBN must find a way to fix her ship, evade capture by the United States Air Force and survive long enough to return home.

Scifi is not at the top of my list, but Being sure helps move it up some. T.R. tells a new tale about Aliens that you get transported to immediately. The book is set in more than one POV but T.R. does a great job at writing them, so you never feel like you missed out or don't follow what is going on. As far as the ending, she left it so there could possibly be a sequel to follow Being. I think what is great about Being is the message within the story. 

EBN is a young female alien that has been stranded on our planet. She is waiting to be rescued by her people. The problem is she doesnt really blend in to well. Its hard to blend in when you leave beautiful flowers in your wake. She begins to feel emotions for the boy next door. EBN though has to finally end up trying to save herself because the Air Force has discovered her and her abilities. Will she be able to escape our planet. Read this debut novel, you will enjoy that its new and different. I hope you also figure out the wonderful message in the book, Keeping Earth clean. Now enjoy trying to figure out certain events and why they happen, i know I did. T.R. Mousner is a author I will be keeping up with and all her new works. 


  1. I am actually reading this right now and enjoying it myself. I love that it is quite a unique story!

  2. Cool review, this sounds like a really unique story! There isn't enough sci-fi in the current YA atmosphere, I love to see a good one getting a boost.
