What 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.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Committee)
