Nora Evans is beautiful and popular. She’s a cheerleader and dates the captain of the basketball team. No one knows, though, that she lives with her alcoholic mother in a trailer in a part of town her friends wouldn’t be caught dead in. Farrell Halifax is new to school. His car isn’t cool, his family is weird and he has no desire to fit in with the popular kids. No one knows, though, that he hasn’t come to Lexham Academy for the expensive education. He’s come to hunt down a killer alien hiding somewhere among the students. A girl who has only ever wanted to be like everyone else meets a boy who isn’t like anyone else. What to wear to the prom is about to take a back seat to how to save the entire human race!
