The 3 ways to snog an alien are: Don't; Don't; and, Don't. Druce's new girlfriend is hot, but what's with the weird behaviour, freaky parents and the super-human intelligence? And was that really a forked tongue he saw or did he imagine it? Then he meets someone on the internet who tells him that aliens have infiltrated the planet. Could Angela be an alien?

Since the joyriding accident, 15-year-old Matt Norris's life has been hell. His brother, Jake, is dead, and Jake's girlfriend, Joolz, has been hideously scarred. Only Matt escaped the car crash unscathed. Or so it seems. Because now Jake is back, haunting Matt's every step, appearing out of thin air dressed in outrageous costumes. What does he want? Why does Joolz remember the accident differently? What exactly had happened? They'd all been too stoned to know. Riddled with guilt, Matt attempts a deadly reconstruction of that tragic day - and finds himself in a parallel world where the outcome of the crash was very different.
