A young boy is abandoned mysteriously in an orphanage to face the ordeals of the world. In this harsh and unkind world, he is forced to suffer betrayal, hatred, torture and what not … and Oh! there are aliens as well.
When a world so familiar with a regular uninterrupted routine is shaken so violently (metaphor) that the whole world seems to have turned upside down for him, Oliver tries desperately to make some sense out of weirdness around him. He is informed by strangers who claim to be his friends that his parents were sacrificed for the greater good of humanity. Now that the story is unraveled before Oliver, he is requested by the strangers to join a secret organization and help them to rid the world of the Aliens once and for all.
An insecure 14-year old orphan, agrees to accept the offer but as time progresses he realizes that the organization is nothing but a front, masking the darkness trailing behind it. He must put his trust in the right people, or else…
The author is a young, intellectual, dashing but quintessentially self-effacing and brooding personality whose comedic genius spreads far and wide. One might even perceive that he is one of the humblest creatures to ever roam this planet. Looking around, you will generally encounter some absurdly smelling creatureswhich we generally perceive as humans. Now, if you happen upon the ever so amazing author (Ha.. ha..), you will realize that he is a living example of a creature out of the gene pool (Hold on … did I just insult myself or…)
But don’t feel inferior because the author is trying in no way to state the fact that he is better than you. He too often makes mundane mistakes like you. Like forgetting that fire tends to burn stuff, bed bugs are not the most promising pets and that consuming fats tends to … well make you fat.
Being the son of a cop and a doctor is not very easy. Your parents are mostly out of the house and you are… left alone in the house free to do whatever you want (so tough). You often become so consumed with freedom that your mind starts to wander (The author never day-dreams and has definitely never lost attention in class and made up stories of heroic rescues and fights. He is a very attentive student).
Having generally lived away from the rest of the family has helped the author to understand the wonder that is silence. If you look at an individual talking to oneself, don’t get creeped out, instead loathe that person for having so much free time on his plate. Throw a brick at him if you must (the author likes to stay unique as he is).
