Fifteen-year-old Courtney wants to be normal like her friends. But there’s something frighteningly different about her―and it’s not just the mysterious tattoo her conspiracy-obsessed grandfather marked her with when she was a child. The last thing Courtney wants to do is end up crazy and dead like her grandfather―but what about the tattoo? And the alien scouts who visit Courtney in her bedroom at night, claiming to have shared an alliance with her grandfather?
With her new friend Agatha’s apocalyptic visions, Courtney begins connecting the dots between the past, present, and future―of her bloodline, and the ancient history that surrounds it. So is she going mentally insane, like her family claimed her grandfather did, or is she actually a “chosen one” with ancestral connections to another world? Either way, Courtney has a mission: untangle her past, discover the truth, and stop the apocalypse before anyone from school finds out she’s missing.
“Could not put it down”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Michelle d
If you want a book that will keep you attention for a while this is it. I could not pull myself away I wanted to know what happened. This story is very well written easy to read and is very amusing. Its about a young teenager who has these visions that turn into this amazing phenomenon. It starts by everyone believing that she is crazy and how her family is crazy and just when you start thingies maybe she is crazy you finally understand why everything is happening to her. Its explained so well that you dont get lost in all the information. The book is a little over 300 pages and is a great read for even young adults. It doesnt have inappropriate material I would like my 11 year old read this next. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good book. I reviewed this book at a discount for my unbiased opinion.
About the Author
Brady G. Stefani has a bachelor’s degree in creative writing, and a graduate degree in law. During law school, he interned with the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health, where he interacted with patients suffering from severe thought disorders, including numerous patients presenting with subjectively real memories of being visited and abducted by alien beings. It was through his study of these patients, along with his own struggles with anxiety and cognition, that Stefani became aware of just how deceiving, mysterious, and powerfully resilient the human mind can be.
In an effort to provide awareness of mental suffering, and spread hope to all those touched by it, Stefani is focused on writing YA novels that explore the experience of being different, and the other-worldly places our boundary-less imaginations can take us. Alienation is his first novel. But with two works currently in progress, the journey has just begun.
