The Yeerk invasion of Earth started out passively. Secretly. But now, everything seems to be stepped up. Even Marco's father is talking about some top secret project at his job.

Maybe . . . maybe someday I could save her. Chee Land wasn't so bad. That's where I stayed now, mostly. They had TV. They had Oreos. When I needed a cable fix, I spent the night at Ax's scoop. It was too risky for me to be at Cassie's or Rachel's or Jake's. And when we didn't have a mission, I went to the

Who knew people left their houses that early? Rolling out of bed in time for school is torture enough for me. Dad's stubble made him look rough, but he was holding on.
