Is a mess." It's about to get a lot messier. Evelyn, it turns out, is a human/alien hybrid, and her nervous wreck mother is right: Mrn in Black ARE hunting them. Evelyn narrowly escapes capture, and with Deb, her middle school bestie, and Gary Mayhew (a biology grad the two more or hijack along the way), the trio trek cross country from Roswell to Las Vegas to the mysterious Groom Lake (Area 51), to rescue both Evelyn's mom and dad (Malin).. Along the way, Evelyn discovers that she inherited more from her dad than her pale complexion, height, and unnervingly large eyes. She has telepathic and telekinetic powers that require practice and control. Our heroes reclaim Elevyn's folks and Malin's UFO and, always pursued by the bloodthirsty General Lyles, return to Malin's home planet, Vetna. The Vetnans, however, are affronted that mankind, a primitive race, kidnapped one of their own. Warships are dispatched. Only Evelyn and her friends can prevent worldwide devastation. Bullets or bacteria won’t work. in the end, Evelyn devises Earth's salvation from something far more surprising.

For ages 10 and up.
