In this heartwarming and charming coming-of-age family rom-com, Itsy, the newest girl in rural Pebble Falls, sees a journalism career opportunity when she is paired up at school with a space enthusiast outcast who insists his parents were abducted by aliens a decade earlier. —M.G.
After uprooting from the city to small-town Pebble Falls, Itsy’s teenage existence is at an all-time low. When she learns about a writing contest that would earn her a journalism internship in New York City, Itsy pursues her odd neighbor, Calvin, as the subject of her piece. Convinced his parents were abducted by aliens, Calvin slowly brings Itsy into his seemingly delusional world of comet chasing and UFO sightings as he awaits his parents’ return. But Itsy’s investigation takes a sharp turn into the unknown, causing Calvin to question everything he’s ever known. A mix of feel-good humor and heartfelt depth, the family-friendly ALIENS ABDUCTED MY PARENTS AND NOW I FEEL KINDA LEFT OUT offers a new, refreshing take on an out-of-this-world, coming-of-age journey. —A.B.
