The Serpent King meets Stranger Things in Emily Henry's gripping novel about a group of friends in a small town who find themselves dealing with unexpected powers after a cosmic event.

Almost everyone in the small town of Splendor, Ohio, was affected when the local steel mill exploded. If you weren't a casualty of the accident yourself, chances are a loved one was. That's the case for seventeen-year-old Franny, who, five years after the explosion, still has to stand by and do nothing as her brother lies in a coma.

In the wake of the tragedy, Franny found solace in a group of friends whose experiences mirrored her own. The group calls themselves The Ordinary, and they spend their free time investigating local ghost stories and legends, filming their exploits for their small following of YouTube fans. It's silly, it's fun, and it keeps them from dwelling on the sadness that surrounds them.

Until one evening, when the strange and dangerous thing they film isn't fiction--it's a bright light, something massive hurdling toward them from the sky. And when it crashes and the teens go to investigate...everything changes.

Pop Culture Alien Invasion:

Aliens on screen:

I can’t talk about aliens without first talking about Roswell. I was a fan of the original show and am LOVING the update. The latest version corrects the white, heterosexual homogeny and keeps the emotion and characters that tied us to the series in the first place. Highly recommend if you’re not already watching!

Independence Day is one of the first movies I can remember seeing in theaters and it’s awesome that we got more! Plus, how scary where those aliens!

Aliens on the page:

What happens when earth is colonized? Turns out, some pretty scary stuff. I loved this duology, with excellent characters and plot points worthy of book club discussion!

Clark Kent gets all the attention with marketing but what Mariko Tamaki does with Kara Danvers is something out of this world. She’s real. She’s authentic. And she’s a teen trying to learn who she is in this world!

Aliens in your ears:

No, this is not an earworm (well, maybe that Britney Spears song is) but this is a playlist full of alien songs!
