Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

An alien abduction has left behind only those younger than sixteen, older than sixty-five, or too "disabled" to work. In other words, people who weren't a threat--until now. Twins Sam and Wyatt are ready to chuck their labels, break free from their captors, and inspire others to do the same. It's time for "the last picked" to step into the game.Jason Walz pairs vivid world-building and a fast-paced adventure in a beautiful story of sibling devotion. With humor and action, Last Pick shares an empowering message about the dangers of labeling and writing people off.

Horn Book Review

Color by Jon Proctor. Years ago, everyone "useful" was taken away by aliens to an unknown place, leaving the young, elderly, and disabled. Now teens, Sam and her twin brother Wyatt (who seems to be on the autism spectrum) find themselves in a unique position to help whoever is left--and hopefully find their parents. Walz's emotively illustrated graphic novel puts a heartfelt spin on the alien-takeover scenario. (c) Copyright 2019. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
