(highest ranking: #1 in falling skies, #2 in ben mason (on going))
Alyssa Marks has been best friends with Benjamin Mason since kindergarten. They were inseparable as kids, they stayed the same way as teenagers. Until the invasion.
She never imagined that aliens would come down from the skies and take over the world, she never imagined that she'd be on the run from giant things that were trying to wipe out the human race, she never imagined that her best friend would be taken from her, but it happened. She was with the Mason's when they first arrived, and she's stayed with them ever since. They took turns in protecting each other.
Then they finally find Ben, and they save him. But he's different, different than the Ben she used to know. But something strange happens. In the mist of this bitter war, she finds herself possibly...falling for her best friend?
