Gr 9 Up—Henry Denton is abducted by aliens who tell him that by merely pushing a button, he can save Earth from annihilation. What seems like an obvious decision becomes a complicated thought process for a teen who has experienced the worst of humanity—bullying, loss, and grief—and who wonders if oblivion is the answer. This strikingly original work will grip readers and force them to ponder tough questions.
