Chevelle Donahue thought going into work would be just like any other boring day at the mall. Sure, there was her annoying co-worker Wicken Sanders, and a promotional visit from teen heartthrob Timber Hudson, to watch and keep her entertained. But who was she kidding? Working retail was lame no matter what happened.

A terrorist attack changes everything - an attack from aliens of all things. The patrons are given two options: comply or else. Complying means giving in to a new set of rules and changing her entire life. "Or else" means she has no chance of going home again.

She must figure out the truth behind why the aliens are holding everyone hostage. In doing so, she risks her chance at freedom - but by the time she learns what's really happening, she might not want it.

The story follows Chevelle Donahue as she expects to go on about her boring day. Seriously, what could be interesting about retail sales? Add the fact that the retail sales is at a kids mall with her annoying-albeit-hot co-worker Wicken Sanders, it sure was going to be a lame day, no matter which way you see it.

That is not what happens. Sure she expected to see her long time crush and the biggest teen heartthrob Timber Hudson at the mall for his promotional visit, but what she did not expect was the terrorist attack. If that was not enough, the terrorist happen to be no human. Now, locked in a room with the hot co-worker and her long time crush, she has two options, either surrender or try to run, the latter having a violent outcome.

Follow Chevelle on her mysterious journey where she is living a dream, all the luxuries of life, paired with the boy she always liked, where females are more important than men. What could be bad? Except one exception, she is not on earth.

The story was a page turner. It will boggle your mind, it will make you laugh, make you angry but most of all, it'll capture your heart, till the end.
