Teens often feel alienated from their parents. But what if your parent was an alien? The Alien’s Daughter by JC Morrows explores that question, opening with a single significant event: blue-haired Zoe’s discovery that her dad is an extraterrestrial. This not only explains her strange and recently developed powers, but also helps her understand why her dad wavers between friendliness and hostility. Although this development may not match some readers’ normal experience, The Alien’s Daughter presents an intriguing take on how an alien could blend in with earthlings. This novel-length tale is more of an extended short story about discovery, and values emotion over action. Subsequent installments in the series are sure to uncover more half-alien predicaments for Zoe to confront.
