Seeing is believing, and when Carl Thornton, seventeen-year-old UFO enthusiast and high school nerd, sees a double of his homeroom teacher, he knows that something is not quite right.
Then again, he lives in Rachel, Nevada, the area known as ‘UFO Central’. Formerly from Chicago, he came to live with his alcoholic uncle after the untimely death of his parents. His fondest wish is to gaze at the stars and see a UFO.
Wish granted on both counts, as he meets Grace Paxton, a high school junior and a recent transfer student. Through a series of circumstances, he discovers that Grace is a shape-shifting alien, a Theriantan, and once he’s with her and her people, he learns the real reason for Area 51, the secrets it holds… and the danger that lurks beyond.
Mr. Frankel did a wonderful job of writing an intriguing story that can be read by adult and young adults. Meet the wonderful characters of Star Maps. Carl may seem like a misfit but when he befriends Grace he discovers so much about life and the universe. When the government decides to get involved Carl fights to save Grace and her family.
What draws you in with this story is that you feel like you are right alongside the characters in Nevada. You feel the excitement of learning about secrets and dangers of aliens and Area 51. This is a unique story that will hold your interest from beginning to end.
