NPR Summary

In the sleepy town of Vern Hollow in 1956, Jack Creedle and Isadora Shumway stumble onto an alien spacecraft and end up imprisoned, along with seven other townsfolk. Who knows why the aliens care so much about Vern Hollow? Only Jack's odd Uncle Bud — so it's up to Jack and Isadora to set everyone free.
