He's been tested once, and failed. Now he'd been given a second chance-and every solution would be wrong.

When the ship that brought him to Earth crashed and Tweedlioop (not his real name) was the only survivor, he found himself at the mercy of Earth and its inhabitants. Some were kind and understanding: Bill saved him from wolves in the Alaskan wild; Danni battled authorities for his custody, and Laurie became his one true friend. They all wanted to help him return to his people.

But the US government didn't. They trapped him, to test him, and to hold him hostage. They planned to trade him for the key to his people's stardrive. If his friends could not help him before the ship arrived to rescue him, it would be too late, not just for Tweedlioop but for all of Earth.

A funny, charming, suspenseful story of a shipwrecked alien and the girl who loved him.
