They murdered the weak, infected the strong, and took over the world. But why should I care? I just met the coolest girl in Hidden Trail.
The invaders need the mentally strong and the physically able—the rest of the human population is simply landfill. Who are these creatures and what are their intentions? Sheldon, a fifteen-year-old high school dropout, has no interest in finding out—at least not yet. Instead, he fights for his life as these ruthless aliens take over the little town of Hidden Trail. Sheldon takes refuge in an abandoned school with a beautiful girl named Cara and a couple of kids with profound ideas about the motives of the alien invasion. The group is soon picked up by some edgy teenagers who prepare to escape to the water. However, when Cara goes missing, Sheldon deviates from the plans and discovers more about the rapidly evolving aliens and their horrifying yet curious vision.
