Details: Kate’s new friend is really out of this world—he’s an alien!
When Kate sits down at the computer, nothing seems out of the ordinary. But suddenly a mysterious message flashes up on the screen. Someone who calls himself BB-9 is trying to get through to her. It doesn’t take long for Kate to figure out who BB-9 is—and she’s sure that everyone else will be as excited as she is. But what do you do when you’re about to make headlines . . . and no one believes you?
“Readers . . . will be easily hooked on the fascinating sci-fi premise.”—Booklist
