''Roswell High'' was a series of YoungAdult novels written by Melinda Metz that led to the creation of the tv series ''{{Roswell}}''.

The series mainly revolved around a group of [[SixStudentClique six teenagers]], three of which happened to be aliens.

There were a total of ten books in the series. Their titles are ''The Outsider'', ''The Wild One'', ''The Seeker'', ''The Watcher'', ''The Intruder'', ''The Stowaway'', ''The Vanished'', ''The Rebel'', ''The Dark One'', and ''The Salvation''. The first five books came out before the TV show started, after which they were re-released with new covers (with the actors on them). The rest of the series was released following that.

!Tropes in this series include:
* AlienAmongUs: More than one of them.
* TheAllegedCar: Mr. Hughes' pick-up.
* AuraVision: The aliens see auras all the time. The humans can see them as well during the [[MentalFusion group connection]].
* BigBad: Books 1-5: Valenti; books 6-9: [[spoiler: [=DuPris=]]]; book 10: [[spoiler: the [[HiveMind collective]] [[IndividualityIsIllegal consciousness]]]]
* BuffySpeak: A decent bit under the standard definition. Special mention for actually using the word "wiggins".
* CliffHanger: Every book except the first and last ends in one of these.
* TheCheerleader: Stacey for sure. Isabel would probably also been seen this way by the school at large.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Isabel
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: From book #9, ''The Vanished'': "[[spoiler: Mr. Manes]] thrust the tip of the weapon through the hole and squirted a long stream of chemicals into the cavern."
* TheEmpath: An alien can feel the other aliens' emotions. They can also tell the emotions of others from the state of their [[AuraVision auras]].
* HealingHands: Max heals Liz in the first chapter. The most famous example, but not the only.
* HumanityIsInfectious: [[spoiler: Trevor]]
* InnocentAliens: The crew of the ship were apparently scientists.
* JustFriends: Max and Liz go through this.
* {{Keet}}: Adam. The guy is amazed by [[MundaneMadeAwesome toast]].
* KillItWithFire: [[spoiler: Adam ([[DemonicPossession DuPris]]) at the end of book 5.]]
* MindOverMatter: The aliens' powers are used to manipulate physical objects many many times.
* NoSocialSkills: Adam
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler: [=DuPris=]]]. Also, [[CoolOldGuy Ray]], a little.
* PsychicLink: The connection that the aliens can form. It goes both ways between two aliens. One way between an alien and a human (athough Max proved with Liz that he could make it go the other way at least).
* PsychicNosebleed: [[spoiler: Maria]] once when she [[spoiler: thought she had psychic powers]] in book 3. Although, the nosebleed [[spoiler: seems to have more to do with the bounty hunters attacking than the visions.]]
* RoswellThatEndsWell: duh.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler: Adam, who is killed very suddenly by [=DuPris=]]].
* ShapeshifterDefaultForm: Type B
* ShapeShifting: [[VoluntaryShapeshifting both]] [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting kinds]] are used within the series.
* SixStudentClique: The characters fit this trope far better than FiveManBand.
** The Main Character - Max
** The Muscle - Michael
** The Quirk - Alex
** The Pretty One - Isabel
** The Smart One - Liz
** The Wild One - Maria in the quirky aspect. Isabel would also be this in the wild child aspect.
** [[TheSixthRanger The Seventh Ranger]] - Trevor embodies this the best, but also Cameron and Adam. (Although the latter also seems kind of like a TagalongKid, except he isn't actually any younger).
* StalkerWithACrush: Max at the beginning. Also, in book three (except then it's far more than a [[StalkingIsLove crush]].)
* TechnicolorEyes: Max's eyes, according to Liz. His eyes are apparently a really odd shade of blue, with a touch of silver. Also, Nikolas.
* TeenGenius: Liz and Max.
* TouchOfDeath: The same power that makes [[HealingHands healing]] possible, also makes this possible.
* WrapItUp: Although it's not a TV show, the final novel in the series has a similiar feel to it, wrapping up loose ends. Apparently, a decision was made to end the series because the books being published for the TV show were selling better. Slightly ironic in that the show was later CutShort.
