Jean-ann Stump | 4 comments Around 1985 I read a YA or Teen book about a teenage girl in Galveston Texas. The girl has a younger brother and her best friend is a time traveler and I think an Alien who is hiding in the 1980s until she can return to her own time to save her people. I believe that this book was the second in the series. The book starts on the day after Christmas. I have been looking for this title for a long time. I hope that someone will know it.

Here is a snippet from the Kirkus review.
A not-so-alien boy from another universe inadvertently spends a year in Texas. (view spoiler) Then, at midwinter, Ahto loses both himself and his world in a dense fog and lands abruptly in the path of Paula and Peter, who are biking to their first day of school after Christmas. (view spoiler)

Jean-ann Stump | 4 comments Thank you but this is not the book I remember. The Alien is definitely a teenage girl. There is a boy from the past but he is also a teenager. And this book was published in 1990. The book that I read had to have been published in the 80s because I was in middle or high school when I read it.

Thank you for commenting.

Jean-ann Stump | 4 comments I'm afraid it is not Timelost either. In the book I read the Girl is older than her brother.

Thanks.
