Hilde is at it again to get a factual story for the newspaper. This time, it's a mysterious flash of light in the sky. When the whole town starts talking about the possibility of aliens, it's up to Izzy and Hilde to find out the truth.

Izzy and Hilde collect their clues by interviewing people and investigating the landing sight. Fingers continue to point at aliens and it gives Hilde and Izzy the creeps, especially since they watched an alien takeover movie recently. Their hesitance doesn't stop them and the perseverance aids them in solving the case.

I really like that Hilde isn't quick to jump to conclusions or to write her stories. Instead, she waits until she has all of the facts. This series is fun and keeps you guessing until the end. I like that Hilde and her sister work closely together to solve the mystery.

Final Verdict: This series is perfect for fans of mystery, sisterhood, writing, keeping up with the news, and journalism.
