A startling, wonderful novel about the true meaning of being an alien in an equally alien world.

We are specks. Pieces of dust in this universe. Big nothings. I know what I am.

Mal lives on the fringes of high school. Angry. Misunderstood. Quiet, but with a lot of words underneath.

Seven years ago, Mal disappeared for three days. Everyone tells him it was a breakdown, a seizure, something medical. He thinks it was something different. An alien abduction.

But there's no way for him to know for sure.

Then, at an abductee support group, he meets Hooper, who has some otherworldly secrets of his own. And suddenly the truth is closer than Mal ever imagined itcould be.

They are out there and they are watching us. One day, I'm going with them. And I'm going to be free.
