A HUMAN BOY WITH AN ALIEN POWER.
“The thing is, it wasn’t meteors that fell into the woods that night. It was alien spacecraft.”
Government agents have taken every precaution to cover up the truth about an event dubbed The Cosmic Fall: when UFOs crash near a peaceful town, the media are led to believe it was fallen meteors. But the agents weren’t counting on young Ben Archer being a witness. Nor were they counting on there being a lone survivor of the crash: an alien man called Mesmo.
Thus begins a police hunt to capture the boy and the alien, as, among the agents, hides Mesmo’s treacherous enemy who quietly spurs on the investigation.
And although the destinies of boy and alien become inextricably linked, one question hovers above their unlikely friendship: why did the aliens come to Earth in the first place?
Harry Potter meets Starman in this fast-paced science fiction novel packed with adventure for middle graders and teens. If you enjoyed A Wrinkle In Time or E.T. The Extraterrestrial, you will devour book 1 in The Alien Skill Series.
