Synopsis:  If an alien passed you in the street, would you know? Except for an unfortunate attachment to numbers, Andromeda Brown is an ordinary girl with an ordinary life at a perfectly ordinary school. Until, that is, circumstances throw her into contact with folks whose zip code is, quite literally, out of this world. Her new acquaintances are in trouble and desperately need her help. They are frantically looking for a freakish, shape shifting alien scientist who has been hanging out on planet Earth for, well, ages. And hard as it is to track down someone who can change appearance at will, Andromeda’s difficulties are multiplied by the fact that she and her friends are not the only ones on the shifter’s trail. Darker forces are at work. For if the shifter’s knowledge falls into the wrong hands, humanity is in for a very bad day.

My Review:  In The Shifter’s Trail, author Adam Alexander presents a highly imaginative take on alien invasions.  When young Andromeda and her friends are plucked from Lake Michigan by an alien species, they unwittingly become involved a quest to find the Shifter and save Earth from certain destruction.

Well-written and thought-out, this fast-paced book leads the reader on a unique adventure.  Chock full of twists and turns, it is a fun read that I would recommend to any young adult sci-fi fan.
