Kaila Guidry has always known she is different. When she meets Jordyn Stryker at school, she finds out
just how different.
Jordyn was born and raised far from Earth, a starseed, one of six new students sent to Louisiana's Bush
High to learn human ways. But Jordyn didn't count on meeting someone like Kaila.
When Kaila is pushed to her limit by high school bullying and cruelty, Jordyn awakens her to a new
reality—and to love. But to prove herself, Kaila must look the other way as the real purposes of the
As the horrific plan behind the starseed visit to Earth moves inexorably forward, Kaila and Jordan,
caught in an impossible love, must determine where their true loyalties lie.
"You know from the opening paragraph that something very strange is going on… We see Kaila try to live
the life of a normal teen, and we see her "otherness" pull her back into an increasingly tangled web of
questions, deceit, and hidden intentions. Liz really shines as a writer, lining the closets and drawers of
everyday life with spine-chilling suspense that springs out at you when you least expect it. Starseed is an
entertaining read. I highly recommend."
--Patricia B. Smith. Author “What the Animals Tell Me” and “Fifty Shades of Santa” (clean romance
"Liz Gruder’s characters come alive through youthful, spunky narrative, and her headstrong heroine,
Kaila Guidry, elicits a reader’s encouragement from the first page. Fans of Amanda Hocking will find
themselves similarly transported into Gruder’s exploration of the dark sides of faith, love, higher
dimensions, and, of course, high school." --Jadie Jones, young-adult fantasy author
Author Liz Gruder
As a youth, Liz Gruder saw a series of UFOs with her best friend while riding bikes. Ever since, she’s held
a fascination for the stars. An avid reader, she used to hide under her covers and read with a flashlight.
She has degrees in English and Psychology from Tulane University, a nursing license and a yoga
certification. After going through Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Liz realized how short life is and is
now slowly fulfilling her bucket list: she’s been to the Egyptian pyramids (totally awesome and thought
provoking) and is now teaching yoga and writing speculative fiction. Starseed is her debut novel.
