When Emery was 6 years old, an alien spacecraft crash-landed in her small town. Whether they came in peace or with more sinister intentions didn't matter: a fierce battle erupted as humans fought for control over their new rivals, an alien species called the Atrians. In the midst of the conflict, Roman, a 6-year-old Atrian boy, found his way to a shed behind Emery's house, where she temporarily protected him from harm, bringing him food, comfort - and friendship. Ten years later, the Atrians have been acclimated to life on Earth, but they are interned in a heavily-guarded camp known as the Sector to keep them separate from humans. Now, for the first time, a group of Atrian teens will enroll in a suburban human high school, with the goal of testing the feasibility of human/alien integration. Emery and Roman find each other again in a school and a society that distrusts everything about the Atrians. While the world around them rages with anger and prejudice, their bond becomes increasingly strong and increasingly dangerous.

When Emery Whitehill was 6 years old, an alien spacecraft crash-landed in her small town and she met Roman, a 6-year old Atrian boy, who sought refuge with her before being taken away by the authorities. Ten years later, the two are reunited as the first group of Atrian teens is about to enroll in high school in a widely scrutinized social experiment to see if humans and Atrians can live in peace. Both Emery and Roman are surprised at the small-mindedness of their respective communities. Roman’s sister, Sophia, is excited to make new friends, but their fellow Atrians, Teri and Drake, openly distrust all humans. The human students are equally wary of the aliens, especially the school’s queen bee Taylor. Kind-hearted Grayson is drawn to Emery but has a secret that could threaten their new friendship. Only two of Emery’s friends – Julia and Lukas, seem able to accept the Atrians. Emery and Roman find themselves drawn together again but outside forces work hard to keep them apart.
