ET meets Harriet the Spy in Greg van Eekhout’s stand-out middle grade adventure about a boy trying to find his place in the world—even though he’s an alien from a distant planet.

Strange things are happening in Cedar Creek View, Arizona: Sinkholes. An unidentified Hum. People behaving . . . oddly. No one knows the reason, but Jake thinks it might have something to do with him.

Jake is no ordinary twelve-year-old. He’s weird—alien weird. Up until now, Jake and his parents have been able to keep his real identity under wraps. This year, something’s changed. Jake’s having more and more trouble hiding the truth, and now Agnes Oakes has seen what he can do.

But instead of spilling his secret, Agnes wants to team up and figure out what’s really going on—and before they know it, Jake and Agnes are waist deep in a conspiracy that’s totally out of this world.
