Freakishly intelligent and socially awkward, Nikola has given up on living in harmony with classmates and teachers who reject her unusual hobbies and general refusal to get along. When Nikola’s life is axially inverted by mysterious aliens who abduct her father and attempt to recruit her into their service, she discovers her father has concealed the existence of an entire hidden world from her. Now she must take refuge at a school for humanoid aliens where she discovers that there are other people in the world who understand what it’s like to be her, and that she has certain abilities no one understands.
