This book was a wild ride, I can tell you that. I went into this thinking it would be leaning more towards science fiction; what I got was not that, per se, but it was equally as riveting. Matty’s dad runs away with his brother’s wife, and Matty and his mom are left alone on the family farm. Next to the farm is a field where a spaceship ‘landed’ 50 years back. When a strange girl appears there and claims she is an alien, Matty doesn’t know what to think. Over the course of 8 days, Matty learns about himself, about love, loss, and the possibilities that lurk in every corner. Now, this is as far as I can go without completely ruining your experience with this novel, but I promise you will not be disappointed. There is a twist ending that left me gaping like a fish, completely and utterly shocked (!!!!) but I swear it is SO worth it! Beware: tears up ahead. Happy reading! 4/5 stars.
