Mere minutes after arriving at their Nantucket family beach home, nine-year-old Scotty Sullivan was out the back door, scrambling toward the shore with Larry, the family dog, fast on his heels. Late in the afternoon in mid-spring, the typical summer beach crowd visitors were still weeks away. Suddenly, Scotty became aware of an odd-looking object, hovering just above the crashing surf. In an age of hobbyist’s drones and all sorts of flying gadgets, he wasn’t overly concerned until the large flying object moved much, much, closer.

Many of the characters were unbelievable, unrealistic and incredibly stupid. The main character is an unbelievably perfect person. The politicians, police and other general characters were unbelievable also. It was very hard not to turn the audio off when characters were doing things so stupid, it was just ridiculous. The story could have been great with a little realism pored into the characters.
