Dark Side of Nowhere
This book starts out with a boy named Ethan dieing and everybody said it was
appendicitis however later Jason and some others realized it wasnít. Jason
didnít like his life because he thought it was too boring and he thought his
parents were too nice because they never punished him too badly. Also at

Ethanís wedding, Jason wondered why Ethanís parents didnít cry but his dad
said it was shock however later Jason learned Ethan hadnít died at all. At a

Little League game in Billington, Jason got in a fight with a boy because that
boy was insulting the pitcher who was the girl that Jason liked. He got badly
beat up and he went to the restroom to take care of the bruises that he had
gotten. Then his school janitor, Mr. Grant, walked inside the restroom and gave

Jason a glove that shot out BBs however Jason learned that the glove shot BBs by
himself. He also told him to meet by a barn in a place called Old Town to learn
what to do with it. The next day, Paula, the pitcher that Jason liked, went to

Jasonís house and told him he ruined her no-hitter yesterday. She was turning
to leave but Jason wanted her to stay there so he decided to show her the glove

Grant had given him even though Grant said not to show anyone the glove. He went
to the back of his backyard and showed it to her. Then they went to Old Town
because they got carried away in a "game" when Paula took the glove because
she wanted to know where Jason had gotten the glove. They went into Old Town and
they found many sightings that were "weird" such as a picture of a person
that looked exactly like Billy Chambers who was a kid that went to their school
and they saw a message carved into a wall that said, "God Help Us". At
school the next day, Jason said he had to get his monthly shots so he couldnít
help Paula search around Old Town. Jason and everybody else who did receive them
thought they were for health however they learned later that they were to keep
their natural bodies and not their alien bodies. The next day was the day that

Jason was supposed to meet to learn about the glove however Paula wanted him to
help search for the truth about Old Town however he said he had a meeting and

Wesley saved him by saying it was a Boy Scout meeting because Wesley also had to
meet there. Wesley had received his glove 2 months before and he along with many
others was sent to go there. Jason realized that these were all people who had
parents that were their parentsí closest friends. At home, his parents said
they were moving and they were not going to stay in Billington. Jason wanted to
know why and he pulled out the glove that he got from Grant. His dad furiously
wondered where he had gotten that and he got very mad. He finally went out and
went to a storm cellar in Old Town that was actually a space ship. There,

Jasonís dad told him everything: about how he was an alien and how they got to

Earth and about them stealing the faces of the human civilians that previously
lived there before they were killed. At school the kids talked about them being
alien because most of their parents had told them. Also Jason learned that the
monthly shots were turning into weekly shots. Also the kids learned that Ethan
really hadnít died, he was just in alien form so he couldnít come to school.

Also they turned the meetings for the aliens into everyday since it was summer
and the people begin thinking they were better than everyone. A few days later
people rushed to Jasonís house because they were becoming the aliens in the
form that they actually were. They wanted to know what was happening so they
went to Grantís house. Grant said it was test to see if Jason could unite all
of them and he showed Jason what Ethan looked like because he thought Jason
would make a good leader. The next important thing was that the people who were
aliens had moved to Old Town to live and they could get a new weapon that burned
holes in things. Also Jason was told by Ethan that he
