When Travis MacDuff meets the girl next door, Eliza, it is love at first sight. Teen-aged love is complicated enough, but Eliza has a secret that makes everything just plain weird.
That was so very typical of Raffles. Once he’d infinitely complicated one of my problems, he’d just take off and leave me hanging there. All I’d been doing was trying to check out a girl-- a fairly normal activity for a guy my age, no matter what anybody said. Now I had to worry about aliens living next door to me.
