I picked this one up after reading a couple of other alien books ("Smekday" and "Doom Machine"). Owen has just moved to a new town in upstate New York following the death of his mother. He and his father are each trying to cope with the loss in their own way, his father by immersing himself in his work. So when Owen finds an injured girl hiding in an abandoned house, he is very curious about her story that she is from another planet and must build a signal so her parents can come retrieve her and he decides to help her. Their growing friendship helps him learn to appreciate his life as it is, and as it could be with a little effort by him and his father.
