Summary
  • Not long after Hank, Ana, and Milo Vasquez's father leaves, an alien named Luz arrives and uses them to satisfy his curiosity, then leaves them forever changed
  • When the Vasquez siblings' father left, it seemed nothing could remedy the absence in their lives ... until a shimmering figure named Luz appeared in the canyon behind their house. Luz filled the void. He shot hoops with seventeen-year-old Hank's hands. He showed fourteen-year-old Ana cinematic beauty behind her eyelids. He spoke kindly to seven-year-old Milo. But then Luz left, too, and he took something from each of them. As a new school year begins, Hank, Ana, and Milo must carry on as if unaltered by an alien presence. But how can they ever feel close to other people again when Luz changed everything about how they see the world - and themselves? In an imaginative and heartfelt exploration of human - and nonhuman - nature, acclaimed author Leah Thomas champions the unyielding bonds between family and true friends. -- From dust jacket
