The Owls Have Come to Take Us Away

(2) YA Twelve-year-old Simon believes aliens have made regular contact with humans. When this belief is terrifyingly confirmed on a camping trip, the truth seems too much to bear. Escaping into computer games and his own fantasy writing, Simon finds some comfort but no resolution to his increasingly frequent abductions by aliens. Simon's first-person narration sustains the story's strong forward momentum toward a climax that will chill readers straight to the bone.
