Marie C. Collins lives in Lambertville, New Jersey (USA), with her two dogs, George Eliot and Henry James, who — in spite of their snoring and a tendency to sniff horrifying things — are very good company (and in return, willingly endure Marie’s insistence that they love being kissed on their snouts).

Once you find out your mother is an alien, what ISN’T possible?!
Minutes after Anne and Atticus Reade learn that their mother is “Farbookonian” and their parents’ secret project has put the family in danger, they’re whisked off to Earth human camp for protection. They do their best to fit in while concealing their alien background and the “special talents” that go with it, but it’s their first time among young Earth humans and everything seems threatening to them. When things take an ominous turn, can they trust themselves to know what really is? http://amzn.to/1ACuEUy

Especially when those tweets are followed by reviews! 5 stars from Rachael at her book blog, "Elementaread," a name that captures both her general love of reading and all things Sherlock Holmes. It's a wonderful review, but beware, it includes SPOILERS :)
