Think your school is strange?
Feel like you don’t quite fit in?
Fourteen-year-old Sherman Capote is an Air Force brat used to moving schools. But he’s never been to a place like Groom Lake High, the high school for aliens at Area 51.
Jeff Norton is an award-winning, London based author focused on creating compelling characters, awesome stories, and immersive worlds. A reluctant reader as an adolescent, Jeff’s newest book, ‘Alienated: Grounded At Groom Lake’, encourages readers to laugh and experience a sense of belonging among the aliens of Area 51.
Jeff always creates such unique characters. He possesses this superb skill where he can literally breathe life into the most zany character you can imagine. – Toppsta
