Does Tucker Pierce have what it takes to be a hero when the U.S. military quarantines his
Fourteen-year-old Tucker Pierce prefers to fly under the radar. He’s used to navigating around
summer tourists in his hometown on idyllic Pemberwick Island, Maine. He’s content to sit on the
sidelines as a backup player on the high school football team. And though his best friend Quinn
tells him to “go for it,” he’s too chicken to ask Tori Sleeper on a date. There’s always tomorrow,
he figures. Then Pemberwick Island is invaded by a mysterious branch of the U.S. military
called SYLO. And sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option for Tucker, because tomorrow
may never come.
It’s up to Tucker, Quinn, and Tori to uncover the truth about the singing aircraft that appears
only at night—and the stranger named Feit who’s pushing a red crystal he calls the Ruby that
brings unique powers to all who take it. Tucker and his friends must rescue not just Pemberwick
Island, but the fate of the world—and all before tomorrow is too late.
