Gr 5–8—When an alien spaceship invades Earth and renders all technology useless, teenagers must use their survival instincts to reunite with their families. Each book focuses on the drama that unfolds as people react to the arrival of the "Visitors." In Lockdown, Sanjay is in school when the invasion occurs. When a mysterious group known as CAPP separates teachers from students and holds them hostage, Sanjay and his friends must figure out whom to trust. After their bus breaks down during the attack, Bailey and her injured brother must make their way on foot in Getting Home. Bailey develops feelings for another survivor, Colby, and the two of them learn from their past mistakes while realizing that life will go on after the invasion. These fast-paced survival/sci-fi stories weave in relatable themes about families, friendship, and romance.
VERDICT An engaging series that will appeal to fans of science fiction and action, written at a fourth grade reading level.
