Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789426684, Hardcover)A thriller about aliens and Area 51-and about accepting people for who they are. No one ever mentions Uncle Patrick. He died years ago, still a boy-and there's no grave. There are no photos. There are no letters. There's nothing to prove that he ever lived. Joshua had thought he was in for a boring summer, stuck taking care of his ailing grandmother in her dusty house, crowded with memories and junk. Then he finds Uncle Patrick's ancient stash of UFO magazines and his eerily detailed paintings of alien ships. As he discovers more and more about the mysteries of a summer long ago, Joshua realized that his newest computer game, AlienState 3, is retelling the story of Patrick's life. Who could know these secrets, hidden away for so many years? Who would want to reveal them now? Has Joshua stumbled onto a family secret? Or has he uncovered something bigger?
