Jessica Harding didn’t think her life could get any worse. Then it did.
Late to her senior prom because her falling-down-drunk mother knocked out a tooth, Jess finally arrives at the school gymnasium to find it eerily empty. Her best friend and the only person on earth who cares about her has disappeared, and Jess is about to lose her mind. A few other stragglers show up late, but at first, none of them believe her when Jess insists something bad has happened. In the same breath, they’re too scared to venture back into the school to find a phone, and the only one courageous enough to go inside with her is nerdy Will Taylor.
It’s both a curse and a blessing when Will arrives late to the prom to discover all his friends have vanished; all of them except for his life-long crush Jessica Harding. At first, Will and the four other students who arrive late believe there’s a logical explanation, but when FBI helicopters descend on their sleepy town within twenty minutes, they realize something is terribly wrong. Nevertheless, even after hours of questioning by grim and disapproving authorities, when Jess wants to sneak into the gymnasium to look for clues, Will is all-in. After all, life in a federal prison is a small price to pay for a night of sleuthing with brave and gorgeous Jess, who’s finally noticed he exists.

The first halfway decent guy to come along in eons, and he’s from another planet.
Dubbed “The Lost Finder,” Private Investigator Brooke Weaver makes her living finding the missing: kidnapped children, runaway teens, and adults who’ve hit rock-bottom. Having lost her first client to a drug dealer’s bullet, she’s vowed never again to bring home a family’s loved one in a body bag.
Unfortunately her latest case has put her up against elements she’s never dreamed possible; a mutated spider from outer space who wants to eat the teenager Brooke has been hired to find, and a drop-dead gorgeous interstellar bounty hunter who tells her she only has 24 hours before the missing girl becomes “hatchling” food.
