Summary
  • Not long after Hank, Ana, and Milo Vasquez's father leaves, an alien named Luz arrives and uses them to satisfy his curiosity, then leaves them forever changed
  • When the Vasquez siblings' father left, there was an absence in their lives-- until a shimmering figure named Luz appeared in the canyon behind their house. He shot hoops with Hank's hands. He showed Ana cinematic beauty behind her eyelids. He spoke kindly to Milo. But when Luz left, he took something from each of them. As a new school year begins, Hank, Ana, and Milo question how can they ever feel close to other people again when Luz changed everything about how they see the world and themselves
