Olivia and her twin sister, Viola, live on a new colony with their xenobiologist parents who catalog and research new worlds.

How far is Olivia willing to go to make friends and make her classmates see her sister as real? When the mayor purchases a ghost ship, Olivia’s dad and a crew from the planet are sent to investigate the ship. Soon, her dad projects an eerie message from the ship. Something isn’t right. Can Olivia figure out what her father’s message meant? This action-packed science fiction is engaging, full of mystery, and terrifying. The characters are engaging and draw the reader into the story. Fans of the Illuminae Files will enjoy reading this book.
