The Area 51 Files
Nancy Drew meets The Last Kids on Earth: Middle school is a whole lot more exciting when your classmates are from a different planet…
When misfit-orphan Sky Patel and her pet hedgehog Spike are sent to live with the mysterious uncle she’s never met, she’s super nervous: what kind of uncle doesn’t visit once in twelve years and refuses to Facetime? It turns out the kind who lives in Area 51, a top-secret military base where everyone must follow only one major rule: What happens in Area 51 stays in Area 51. (Literally. No one can leave.)
Actually, there a bajillion rules, designed to protect the existence of the alien population – or Break Throughs (BTs), as they are known there – that call 51 home. These books are a series of mysteries; in the first, Sky investigates the disappearance of a group of BTs from the planet Zdstrammar.
