Light Years from Home by Mike Chen

  Light Years from Home is about a family whose life was completely upended when their father and son disappear while on a family camping trip. Jacob, a twin to Kassandra and his father are abducted by aliens. When his father is sent back and is rambling about aliens, the youngest sibling Evie takes an interest in the extraterrestrial. She begins working with an online forum group studying abductions and sightings. Kassandra has become a psychologist, and the caretaker of their mother who is deteriorating with dementia. Fast forward 15 years and Evie gets a call about some suspicious readings at the lake where her father and brother went missing all of those years ago. Jacob is back. Over those 15 years the family has grown apart, but Jacob's return brings the family back together and forces them to deal with their grievances. Mike Chen weaves an interesting intergalactic war narrative into a family drama that will keep you interested, while also pulling on your heart strings. Ther
