The Fellowship for Alien Detection is a suspenseful, fast-paced, mysterious, alien adventure! The first sci-fi that I have ever read that is based in the present and highly believable.  If you are not a believer, Haley and Dodger will definitely make you into one!!! The story starts with Haley trying to figure out a way to keep the majority of her fellowship a secret from her family. If they knew half the things that were going on, they would not let Haley go on with her investigation. And Haley is determined to follow through; she wants all the credit she can get to build her resume, her dream is to become a newspaper reporter.  So far, Haley has figured out that there has been a pattern of missing time coinciding with missing persons. Every time a Missing Time Field goes off, everyone within a 16 mile radius experiences a loss of 16 minutes and then 'wakes up' disorientated, confused and with similar stories of what they experienced and saw.  The closer Haley gets to putting the pieces together, the closer she gets to finding out why the aliens are here and what they have been doing.  Dodger lives 3,000 miles away from Haley. He's also won a fellowship. But Dodger's reason's for applying for the fellowship and investigating the possibility of aliens is quite the opposite of Haley's: Dodger has been receiving a radio frequency through his head from a town called Juliette; a town that does not exist on any current map, a town that no one has ever heard of.  Dodger knows that he's always been different from other kids and has never felt like he's ever fitted in anywhere, not even home with his parents. He is determined to find out why - why can he hear this radio station in his head? Why is he so different from everyone else? Why does his father always glook at him like something is not right?  When Haley makes a new discovery, the fellowship tells her she must go home, she's in danger now. But Haley insists on going forward and getting to the bottom of things. The Alto is sent to help her - he works for the fellowship and knows about the aliens, how they work and what they are capable of. But, how does he know so much about them?  Soon after, Haley and the Alto catch up with Dodger -  and things start to really pick up! Discoveries are made!!! Many!!! You will not be disappointed! What really stood out to me the most is even though both Haley and Dodger had some frustrations with their families, in the end, family is what matters the most. Sacrificing and keeping them safe was their top priority.  Kevin Emerson's writing is so kid friendly, interactive and picturesque - which makes up for the length of this book. Seriously, do not be intimidated by 428 pages! The book is hard to put down once you get started and it just flies by! I highly recommend this book to all sci-fi and E.T. fans! And even those who aren't - it is a great book to introduce those who have always been interested but wary of the sci-fi genre.

Something weird is going on… People all over the country are having dreams that aliens are coming down to Earth. In fact, it gets weirder. Some people, and the entire town of Juliette, Arizona are missing. Kid investigator, Haley, gets a “Fellowship for Alien Detection” from a super secret organization that wants to prove that aliens exist. Haley and her family go around the country to try to research “Missing Time” reports in the US and France. Another kid investigator and Fellowship winner, Dodger, is going to research Juliette. When Haley finds out the alien’s Missing Time pattern, She actually takes place in a missing time event – but instead of freezing in time, she kept moving. That’s where “the Alto” comes in. He’s like a secret agent. He put a device on Haley that made the Missing Time not effect her. They escape from the aliens and leave. Dodger is in Roswell when the aliens create a Missing Time event and Haley and the Alto arrive just in time to give Dodger one of those devices. Then they travel to the place where Juliette was – in a flying saucer. They then get inside the time loop around Juliette and want to save the people of the town, but the aliens are there and now the three investigators are the ones the aliens want to abduct! This book rocked! Hailey and Dodger were awesome main characters. They were very modern kids that I think I’d be friends with (if they were real ;) ). I loved the plot of the story – alien abductions and trying to find proof of aliens. Maybe it is because we just visited Roswell NM this fall, but I was totally into the storyline! Mr. Emerson wrote a great action story for kids. It is full of excitement and kept me turning the pages. I recommend this book to kids 9+ **NOTE The publisher sent me this book in exchange for an honest review
