Horn Book Review

In small-town Creek's Cause, teenage brothers Chance and Patrick Rain (The Rains) continue their fight against an alien invasion that seeks to invade human bodies over age eighteen to incubate them. The plot struggles to remain action-packed against a narrative conceit relying on Chance's journal entries, which become tiresome. Readers are likely to see the eventual resolution coming.
