Something weird is going on… People all over the country are having dreams that aliens are coming down to Earth. In fact, it gets weirder. Some people, and the entire town of Juliette, Arizona are missing. Kid investigator, Haley, gets a “Fellowship for Alien Detection” from a super secret organization that wants to prove that aliens exist. Haley and her family go around the country to try to research “Missing Time” reports in the US and France. Another kid investigator and Fellowship winner, Dodger, is going to research Juliette. When Haley finds out the alien’s Missing Time pattern, She actually takes place in a missing time event – but instead of freezing in time, she kept moving. That’s where “the Alto” comes in. He’s like a secret agent. He put a device on Haley that made the Missing Time not effect her. They escape from the aliens and leave. Dodger is in Roswell when the aliens create a Missing Time event and Haley and the Alto arrive just in time to give Dodger one of those devices. Then they travel to the place where Juliette was – in a flying saucer. They then get inside the time loop around Juliette and want to save the people of the town, but the aliens are there and now the three investigators are the ones the aliens want to abduct!
This book rocked! Hailey and Dodger were awesome main characters. They were very modern kids that I think I’d be friends with (if they were real 😉 ). I loved the plot of the story – alien abductions and trying to find proof of aliens. Maybe it is because we just visited Roswell NM this fall, but I was totally into the storyline! Mr. Emerson wrote a great action story for kids. It is full of excitement and kept me turning the pages. I recommend this book to kids 9+
