Christina Blake is the new girl in the 8th grade. She seems a little too perfect though. She's absolutely beautiful, smooth and seems to be able to read minds. Zoe Brook becomes suspicious of Christina and begins to believe that Christina is really an alien. When she sees Christina dissolve into sparks right in front of her eyes, Zoe knows for sure. How can she convince others? Who will believe her? To make matters worse, its time to play the game "Elimination", a type of tag game where players are "killed". Zoe is afraid Christina is playing for real.
