would you do if your parents told you that they were from an alien planet
and they were ordered to return in 4 days, otherwise, they will be stuck
on Earth forever and lose their alien powers? Twelve-year-old Nesta
was born in England, where they now live, so she has no memories of the
planet Ormingat. Her parents' mission on Earth is over and they are
looking forward to returning to their home planet. Earth is the only
home that Nesta has ever known and she doesn't want to go with her parents,
but Nesta loves her parents very much. What can she do? With
the help of a friend, Nesta has a plan that will force her parents to choose
between Ormingat and Earth. What is Nesta's plan and will her parents
stay or leave? Read Earthborn by Sylvia Waugh to find out.
