Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Emma was the only one who hadn't given up on her boyfriend, Lucas. Everyone else - his family, his friends, his doctors - was convinced that any moment could be his last. So when Lucas miraculously returns from the brink of death, Emma thinks her prayers have been answered.

As the surprised town rejoices, Emma begins to question whether Lucas is the same boy she's always known. When she finds an unidentifiable object on his family's farm - and government agents come to claim it - she begins to suspect that nothing is what it seems. Emma's out-of-this-world discovery may be the key to setting things right, but only if she and Lucas can evade the agents who are after what they have. With all her hopes and dreams on the line, Emma sets out to save the boy she loves. And with a little help from a distant star, she might just have a chance at making those dreams come true.

    Story
    "Kate Rudd knocks this out of the park!"

    This was a very enjoyable story. I don't know exactly how it found if way in my list, it just did so I gave it a listen without knowing anything about it. I only wish it was longer.

    Kate Rudds reading and narrative was excellent. She really captured the essence of each person.

    "For Ages 12 - 14"

    Intriguing concept although it is written for young people. The narrator for this took too many liberties with the content, meh.

    Story
    "Inesperado, pero lindo."

    Cómo desearía que hubiese una segunda parte, Shipeo a los personajes equivocados, pero podría conformarme con Lucas y Emma estando juntos (Aun así, Scout....). No importa, fue una historia tierna y linda, sencilla y divertida. Me la leí de una sentada.

    "Keeps you engaged from page 1 till the end"

    I like the fact that this audiobook was not super long. It also was engaging right from the start and kept your interest throughout the entire book.

    "fun teen lit story"

    This was a fun read. It could have had more SciFi content and details but it was good and had a nice flow. I could have done without the weird don't text a drive public service announcement that the author goes into, it was kind of a weird side bar in that chapter. I listen to this as an audio book and the reader was excellent!
