I've scoured my bookshelf and movie shelves for something. A few things popped out.
First is a book, Just In Case by Meg Rosoff. I got it through paperback swap. It sounded interesting and it didn't disappoint me. Justin is trying to our run fate. Will he outwit fate or will she catch up with him? It earned a place on my bookshelf.
Second is an anime series I stumbled across. Argento Soma. What caught my attention was the main character's scar. It's mecha anime, which is always fun, and has aliens. I still have the boxed set.
Those are my underrated treasures. Look them up, remember reserve your table and you get better service, and don't forget to check out the other participants.
