When Roxanne Friend, a human visitor from the Alpha Centauri star system, shuts down the drive on her spacecraft she realizes her life-or-death dilemma. The most important part of her spacecraft’s navigational system has disintegrated, leaving her marooned on Earth. If Roxanne is going to make the rendezvous with the starship that brought her to Earth’s solar system, she must accept the aid of those she has come to live with on Earth, and ask them to help her build a replacement part for her spacecraft using the new technology she’s brought to Earth as part of her mission, while keeping her identity secret. Soon after Roxanne arrives, she meets Richie and Danny, two high school seniors, who become rivals for her attention and affections. As Roxanne seeks to complete her mission, she discovers that the lead in the atmosphere and drinking water are slowly poisoning her and causing her to forget who she is and why she came to Earth. Set in Rockwood, Colorado in 1986.
