Resource Description

In 1988 four twelve-year-old girls are out delivering the newspaper on Hallowe’en when they encounter some strange events, including the appearance of monsters in the sky and the disappearance of most of the adults. When aliens land on Earth, the girls are told they will pay for their sins and they are punished by the alien leader by being sent into the future. What happens next is revealed in later volumes of this award-winning graphic novel series. Suitable for independent or silent reading and as part of a literature circle on graphic novels or science fiction for grade 8-9 students. The illustrations help readers understand the plot and characterization. Log in to read the full review.
