Overview

Signal by Cynthia DeFelice

One day while running on the trail near his house in upstate New York, Owen McGuire meets a girl with startling green eyes and bloody cuts all over her body who seems to be utterly alone. Her name is Campion, after the wildflower that is an alien species in the area—alien meaning "from someplace else"—and Campion claims to come from someplace else entirely, a planet called Home. She plans to signal her parents to come pick her up in their spaceship. Owen agrees to help, and as he does, he feels happier than he has in a long time: His mother died a year and a half ago, and now he and his workaholic father live together like two planets on separate orbits, in a new house far from his friends. What will he do when Campion asks him to come with her into outer space, away from his lonely life on Earth?

When I first got the book Signal, I had never heard of the author, and therefore didn't know what to expect. But reading this book changed my life as a reader: in few short words, I loved it! If you are into books about young kids you can relate to but with a special twist, then read this! It is full of suspense and will keep you hanging on until the last page. You must read this book!

Leading up to th terrible ending, the book was still horrible. I have no idea why this book id popular when it is written like a 6 yer old's unedited trash. Dont waste your money on this rubbish.
