About the Book: The only constant in twelve-year-old Jordie’s life has been his twin brother Joey. They’ve been bounced in and out of foster homes all their lives, and Jordie knows why they haven’t been able to find a permanent home: they’re not from this world. They were found in a crop circle when they were babies, and they have circular marks down their spines. When they realize they’re about to go to separate foster homes for the first time ever, Jordie convinces Joey to run away to Roswell in the hopes of finding their birth parents. But Jordie’s about to discover that family isn’t always about the ones who bring you into the world, but the ones who help you survive it.
