The first ship was sighted over St. Louis...and then St. Louis was gone.


For years Dena Anderson had all but ignored her twin brother Dalton, but that was before the aliens arrived. The extra-terrestrial spacecraft neutralized satellite communications, power plants and even the military throughout the United States within hours, leaving Dena and the other residents of Hugo Drive helpless.

Surrounded by danger, what Dena fears most is her next-door neighbor, a mysterious, surly man known only as Beaker.
