When the Vasquez siblings' father left, it seemed nothing could remedy the absence in their lives ... until a shimmering figure named Luz appeared in the canyon behind their house. He shot hoops with 17-year-old Hank's hands. He showed 14-year-old Ana cinematic beauty behind her eyelids. He spoke kindly to eight-year-old Milo. But then Luz left, too, and he took something from each of them. As a new school year begins, Hank, Ana and Milo must carry on as if an alien presence never altered them. But how can they ever feel close to other people again when Luz changed everything about how they see the world and themselves?
