Best friends Gene Brennick and Vince Haskell are no strangers to the world of the weird. They come across freaky aliens like Mold Man, Calamari Girl, and Crumble Bun all the time as part of their work reporting for their homemade weekly tabloid The Globe, a newsletter featuring stories on the aliens living quietly among humans in Santa Rosa, California.
No one at Santa Rosa Junior High takes Gene and Vince’s articles too seriously, not until the boys take their investigative reporting one step too far. Suddenly they are at the center of an intergalactic conflict, one that could be the death of the boys’ friendship, or of the boys themselves – whichever comes first.
