Sixteen-year-old Emily is on the run. Between her parents and the trouble she’s recently gotten into at school, she has more than enough reason to get away. But when she finds a little boy named Aidan wandering in the woods, she knows she needs to help him find his way home. But getting home is no easy matter, especially when Emily finds out that Aidan isn’t even from Earth. When their plane crashes into the side of a snowy mountain, it’s up to Emily to ensure Aidan and their pilot, Bob, make it off the mountain alive. Pursued by government forces who want to capture Aidan, the unlikely team of three trek across the freezing landscape, learning more about each other, and about life, than they ever thought possible.

School Library Journal

The shock of regaining consciousness in the Alaskan wilds after stowing away in bush pilot Bob Simpson’s plane is only the beginning of Emily Perez’s adventure. Not to mention Aidan, the young boy she found in the woods who might be more than he appears. The novel builds tension quickly by placing the trio in an inhospitable environment and almost immediately adding several men determined to catch and recover Aidan, without caring whether or not Emily and Bob get in their way. The story sustains its momentum by having the three face constant dangers that make their survival increasingly unlikely, even as Emily risks everything to save Aidan. They become more dependent on the survival skills Emily learned from her father, a former Special Forces officer. Emily’s background is revealed slowly, highlighting the extreme difference between her earlier life in Minnesota and her current one in Alaska while providing readers with a twist that will keep them transfixed. A title that starts off as an appealing survival story, then moves into an exploration of family and relationships, while maintaining its pace. Will find an audience in school and public libraries.
