THE SPACESHIP NEXT DOOR

by Doucette, Gene

A spaceship lands in an open field in the quiet mill town of Sorrow Falls, Massachusetts, and for three years the ship does nothing other than sit quietly in that field. Nobody understands the full extent of this “nothing” better than the people who live right next door. Then, late one August morning, Edgar Somerville arrives in town. Ed's a government operative posing as a journalist, which is obvious to 16-year-old Annie Collins -- and pretty much everyone else he meets -- almost immediately. He has a lot of questions that need answers, because he thinks everyone is wrong: The ship is doing something, and he needs Annie's help to figure out what that is. Annie is a good choice of tour guide. She already knows everyone in town, and when Ed's theory is proven correct – that something is apocalyptically wrong in Sorrow Falls – she's a pretty good person to have around. As a matter of fact, Annie Collins might be the most important person on the planet. She just doesn't know it.
