the story is basically about an alien boy who lives with his dad as normal humans, tries to leave earth and crashes back to earth.(something goes wrong with their ship)
- I think they had come to earth to report back to their planet about life here
- the boy's surname is a name of a river in US, his teacher puts him with a another boy who also has a river's name as the surname.
- there was a fire in a barn... I can't remember the details :(
- the boy and his dad try to leave for their planet in a spaceship; the ship crashes; the boy is separated from his dad and hospitalized.
- at the hospital he doesn't speak properly...makes weird noises as far as i can remember...
I read this when I was small, so I can't remember that many details :( Your help is much appreciated :)
