The Gene Pull - Benjamin Shepherd Quiñones After reading the first chapter, I almost didn't continue because the story/writing seemed too juvenile. However the second chapter was better and story wasn't bad as the first chapter lead me to believe. I liked most in this story how characters learned from their mistakes and grow up. For example, I was really annoyed how Noah treated animals but he soon understood why it's wrong to order them around. I was relieved that Chris wasn't a douchebag to Noah because he secretly was confused about his sexsuality. (I still can't get over Glee's Karofsky.)It was more interesting to read about Noah dealing with homophobia than aliens. These aliens were like from B-movie. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
