Liv Fleming is done with childhood fantasies. Done pretending she believes her missing father’s absurd theories about alien abduction. Done going through the motions of checking the traps he set just for her friend Doug’s sake. But on the very day she chooses to destroy the traps, she discovers in one of them a creature so inhuman it can only be one thing. In that moment, she’s faced with a painful realization: Her dad was telling the truth. And no one believed him.
Now she and Doug have a choice to make. They can turn the alien over to the authorities…or they can take matters into their own hands.
