How long does it take to travel 13 light-years to Earth?How long does it take to fall in love?

To the universe, eight days is a mere blip—but to Matty Jones, it may be just enough time to change his life.

On the hot summer day Matty’s dad leaves for good, a strange girl suddenly appears in the empty field next to the Jones farm—the very field in rural Pennsylvania where a spaceship supposedly landed fifty years ago. She is uniquely beautiful, sweet, and smart, and she tells Matty she’s waiting for her spaceship to return to pick her up.

Of course she is.

Matty has heard all the impossible UFO stories for all of his seventeen years: the conspiracy theories, the wild rumors, the crazy belief in life beyond the stars. As a kid, he searched the skies with his dad and studied the constellations. But all that is behind him now. Dad’s gone and Matty’s stuck.

But now there is Priya. The self-proclaimed alien girl. She must be crazy or high, right?

As Matty unravels the mystery of Priya, he realizes there is far more to her than he first imagined. And if he can learn to believe in what he can’t see: the universe, aliens…love…then maybe the impossible is possible, after all.

Review – 

In an Oyster Shell – An emotionally provocative read that will pull at your heartstrings.

The Pearls – The book starts out with a cynical Matty who disbelieves everything his father ever told him. Pryia comes into his life showing up at the field and challenges his beliefs. The concept was interesting, its what drew me to the book but the execution was above and beyond expectation. It was unexpected and most welcome.

The characters really make this story. Matty being the main character sets the tone throughout the book. His growth is exponential and makes for a satisfying read. Pryia remains a mystery for most of the book which is intriguing. The two interacting is delightful.

The romance was sweet and changed me as a reader. It challenged my beliefs. I felt that along with Matty I grew a little bit.

The end was unexpected and very well done.

The Sand – It was a good book.

4.5 Pearls!

About Cat Jordan

When I was a teenager, the very first book I ever tried to write was pretentious and stilted and set in a future where there was no paper. Obviously, I fancied myself another Ray Bradbury (who I was thrilled to meet not once but twice!). The book had an awesome title and no plot but I had the most fun creating the characters and the world they lived in. That to me is the most enjoyable part of writing a novel: envisioning a world and populating it with all kinds of people and dogs. Gotta have a dog.

The worlds I create now as an adult are based on my travels from coast to coast in the US, to Europe and Mexico and Canada, and on the people I have met and loved and admired and feared. And dogs.

Currently I live in Los Angeles. With my dog.
