The Weird Adventures of Virgo Capella
Twelve-year-old Virgo Capella and his sister Lyra may have just met an alien posing as a street kid. Biham’s certainly odd enough, and his behavior is erratic. He has strange fits during which he trembles and his eyes dart in terror. But he couldn’t really be an alien, Could he?
When a group of zealous ET hunters targets Biham, Virgo’s forced to consider the impossible: that his strange new friend is not of this world. Enemies are closing in. A threatening individual known only as the Candyman and his cohort are willing to go to any lengths to capture their prey — dead or alive.
Will Virgo, Lyra, and their streetwise new friend Scorpio, be able to protect Biham long enough to figure out how to get him home? Time’s limited — Biham is on the verge of starvation, in desperate need of space food.
