In this sprightly, quirky novel, McCarten adeptly describes the
snowballing effects of national publicity and town gossip. Teenage
meat-packer Delia Chapman's claim that she has encountered a group
of aliens is at first considered temporary insanity because of the
stresses of her job. For how else can her story, which gains her
instant tabloid fame and the envy of her catty friends, be
explained? Things get stranger when Delia realizes she's pregnant,
but remembers little more of her supernatural experience than
lights and noise. When two of Delia's friends also disclose their
pregnancies and likewise blame the spacemen, the town of Opunake
begins to buzz with reporters.
