Your ticket off this planet!
When Chloe (aka Star of Earth) dares to shake off her bullied past to try fitting in at an A-list slumber party, her sleeping bag is the least of her baggage. Unfortunately, more ridicule only reinforces her belief that she’ll never blend in on Earth, no matter how well she hides her double life, alien-influenced quirks, and devastation over the disappearance of her best friends. At least when they were in her life, public humiliation on her homeworld didn’t throw her as much. Their friendship had meant everything.
Symbiont-aided abilities slipping, Chloe becomes an enemy to herself just as a terrifying nemesis threatens to resurface. Can she navigate evolving relationships and old nightmares in time to rescue her legendary reputation as an evil-thrashing sentinel? Does it really matter what world you are on when trying to find yourself–especially when a lunatic is trying to find you first?
