When another kid at school tried to force Jordie to show him the “crop circles” on his back that prove they’re aliens, it’s Joey who takes the kid to the ground. And when they got kicked out of their foster home because Joey kissed the other boy who lived there, it was Jordie who told him everything would be okay. As long as they’re together, it will be. So when the principal calls their current foster mother about the fight, the boys know she’s done with them. From spying in their file, they also know they’re going to be separated.
Facing the world alone rather than without one another, the boys use money Joey won during dares and follow Jordie’s plan to get to Roswell, New Mexico, so they can discover once and for all what the circles on their spines mean and if they might just have family who crash-landed there. And maybe, just maybe, the government is holding them hostage at Area 51. For Jordie and Joey, it’s family or bust.
