Is playing blackjack in the school cafeteria that bad? Samara Brooks doesnt think so. She isnt out to hurt anybody. She just wants to create some drama. And she does. Drama...and trouble.
When the principal threatens to call her parents, Samara proposes a way to save herself. Shell prove shes not a bad person by conducting a scientific experiment to show that she has the same DNA as one of the friendliest girls at school: class president Lily Frederick. But then Nathan Weiss, a kid obsessed with UFOs and mysterious codes, gets involved. And things get really weird.
Samara's DNA looks exactly like the eye symbols in the Phaistos Disk and the Voynich Manuscript, 600-year-old riddle that nobody can decipher - not even professional cryptologists. Does that mean Samara's an alien? Is it a coincidence? Or does it prove something that has never been proven before?
