{Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway} Unite (Project Integrate #1) by Jamie Campbell



Title: Unite (Project Integrate #1)
Author: Jamie Campbell
Date of Publication: December 3, 2013
United They Stand.

Seventeen years ago an entire generation of aliens were sent to Earth in order to save their home planet and integrate into the human population. Now, those aliens are being hunted.

Amery Jones is your typical teenager, except for the fact she is an alien and a member of the government's secret Project Integrate.

When Amery's best friend Lola is kidnapped in order to get to her, there is only one person that can help - the exceedingly annoying and charming Lochie Mercury.

Together, Amery and Lochie must put aside their differences and attraction in order to rescue Lola before it's too late.

"I hate you."

Lochie leaned down, getting right into my face. "I don't hate you."

"Give it time," I seethed.
{Details} 288 pages. Published December 3rd 2013. Source: author/Oops! I Read A Book Again Tours

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!

"My mind had a habit of wandering."(page 1, line 1)
Amery. I'm still getting to know her but I do know that she's a good person, a loyal friend, a person who will go to great lengths to do the right thing, a person with a lot on her shoulders. I liked Lochie. He's smart, has a sense of humor, and has just the right amount of snark. He's also kind of amazing once you see the lengths he'll go to for Amery.

I never really understood the antagonism Amery had towards Lochie, especially because she's easy going the rest of the time. I would have expected him to have done something big to deserve it, instead of just irritating her. I liken their relationship to that of another literary figure - Anne from of Green Gables reacting to Gilbert's 'carrots' comment.

I thought the concept was great and has so many possibilities! I'm excited to read more of the series, there's a lot going on and still a lot of things up in the air at the end of Unite. That said, I did think things were too easy for Amery and Lochie in Unite. They easily escaped and evaded, I expected more of a struggle and actually think it would have made the book more interesting. I also wished there had been some alien tech, so many possibilities there too.

And the cover? I love the cover, the colors, the images, I think it's perfect for the book.
