First came the missing people, missing time events, and untraceable radio signals. Then came Juliette, Arizona, a town that simply disappeared from existence. Suffice it to say, something strange is going on. Enter Haley and Dodger, two kids from opposite sides of the country who both think they can prove that these unexplained phenomena have a very real cause: aliens, and they are about to discover that their fledgling theories about extraterrestrial life are one-hundred-percent accurate.
Having each been awarded a Fellowship for Alien Detection (a grant from a mysterious foundation dedicated to proving aliens have visited earth), Haley and Dodger and their families each set off on a cross-country road trip over summer vacation to figure out what is happening in towns across America. They soon realize that the answers to many of their questions lie in the vanished town of Juliette, AZ, but someone, or something, is doing everything in its power to ensure they never reach it. If Haley and Dodger don't act quickly, more people may go missing, and the world as we know it may change for the worse.
Readers will enjoy this breath-of-fresh-air science fiction as it draws away from the massive dosage of the dystopian assortment. The story is presented in three separate sections which I thought gave the story depth and quality. Starting with Haley’s journal and Dodger’s journey, it was like coming to the end of that 1,000 piece mini-sized puzzle when the two kids work together to tighten up the loose ends. In between, there are plenty of action and adventure that will keep readers’ interest at the highest level. The setting creates the perfect backdrop for this science fiction fun. Author Kevin’s writing style is a stunning display of wonder and amazement. He strategically builds suspense and creates remarkable action scenes. As each page is turned, the book gets harder to put down as the story grabs the reader and leads them to an unforgettable adventure.
