I thought this book was a sweet little story.
Emma is in love with her boyfriend Lucas, but Lucas now has cancer and is dying.
One night there is a crash outside Lucas family farm. No one really pays too much of attention as it's not a big crash, it just sounded like a thud to them. Actually it was a little bitty pod that escaped when the big ship was destroyed.. because you know.. the government likes to shoot shit down and worry about any consequences, but I digress.
There is a little alien, creature thing inside of the pod and the takes refuge in the family dog that comes sniffing around, poor old dog! So, said dog goes into the room with Emma and Lucas for the night and the host transfers to Lucas body! This is good thought because he cures Lucas of his cancer, but he's like a robot trying to learn how to be Lucas and all he wants to do is find a way home.
Lucas has a brother named Eric and Emma and Eric find out there is an alien inside of Lucas. Yeah, right... anyway, Eric decides to name him Scout as this is what the alien is for his planet, a scout.
So, this, that and the other goes down. Emma and Scout form a bond and he knows how much she loves Lucas because he can read a person's thoughts. They take a road trip to try to get in touch with some peeps that an send signals to Scout's planet. That doesn't work out but some other things do and the next thing you know, Scout's race are on their way to get him. They do it without killing Lucas or Scout. They each go back to their lives, a little changed and with memories of a nice, sweet creature they had the opportunity to know... and now...when they look up at the stars, they wonder what Scout is doing..
I liked it! :-)
