Summary

Completely frustrated with the predictability of his town, 14-year-old Jason Miller finds himself totally bored, until Ethan, Jason's friend, suddenly dies and Jason quickly discovers that his peaceful town and the town doctor are up to something horribly evil. Complicating matters is Jason's discovery that he is the son of aliens who stayed on earth following a botched invasion mission.

Critic reviews

"Ultimately, the book asks readers to examine the question of what it means to be truly human. This is great science fiction. It's fun to read and thought-provoking at the same time." ( School Library Journal)

Excellent story!

I am really surprised that there are not more reviews of this book, and that it seems so overlooked. Though it is a YA story, I think it is fun for any age. It is thoughtful, intelligent, well-paced, and the characters are very well developed. The reader does a great job bringing it to life. Well worth a listen.
