Publisher's SummaryEdit

Eleven-year-old Jimi has a crush on his older cousin Nancy, who's a pilot for creepy Dr. Dakien, who also has the hots for Nancy. Unbeknownst to Nancy, Dakien's not just creepy, he's completely mad, and Nancy's rejection has driven him off the deep end. He's killed himself to set in motion a plan to go after Nancy and Jimi! Between rescuing Jimi, staving off Dakien's cybernetic doppelgänger, and battling the aliens Dakien has unleashed, there may not be enough Nancy to go around.
