Wouldnít it be awesome to be in charge of your own fully-funded summer adventure?  Well, as much in charge as an average eighth grader can be...  Thatís what Hailey Richards thinks to herself as she helps her parents pack for their summer trip across the country.  Hailey and Dodger have been awarded a grant from the Fellowship of Alien Detection.  Their job is to travel across the country and prove that aliens exist. It sounds like a great trip, right? The only thing is that Hailey hasnít told her parents that she is really investigating missing children, and Dodger canít figure out what is going on with his father.  Not to mention, someone is trying to stop their investigation.  Will Hailey and Dodger be able to get to the bottom of the mystery behind all of the disappearing children?  And what does the town of Juliette, Arizona, have to do with it everything? Read The Fellowship of Alien Detection in order to find out if they succeed with their mission.   (Prepared by:  Traci Nelson, Aiken Elementary School,  South Carolina Children's Books Award Nominee, 2016)
