   SpillScott Westerfeld is famous for his Uglies and Pretties series. In his new book he ventures into unknown territory with his first graphic novel, words by Westerfeld and art by Alex Puvilland and illustrations by Hilary Sycamore

This graphic novels finds us in Poughkeepsie N.Y., where three years prior to the action an event took place that has forever altered this little town. Strange manifestations and things out of the ordinary are what await anyone in what is now known as the "spill zone". Addison's parents were claimed by the spill leaving her in charge of her younger sister who was a witness and has not spoken a word since. And even though the area is dangerous Addison keeps sneaking back in with her camera in order to gather information as what is happening there is not normal.

Cats that can talk, strange zombie like creatures, and humans who just levitate in the air. The military won't talk about what the problem is, but Addison wants to uncover the truth. Was it aliens? A chemical attack? What?
