Publisher Description

An American Library Association Notable Book: In rural Ohio in 1938, twelve-year-old Willie Bea prepares for Halloween—and an alien invasion!

Halloween is Willie Bea’s favorite holiday. Her relatives always visit, and everyone cooks, bakes, and tells stories. Best of all, the kids get to dress in costume and go trick-or-treating. But this Halloween is different. When Willie’s glamorous aunt Leah, who reads palms and wears sweet-smelling perfume, hears on the radio that aliens are coming to Earth, the entire family is petrified. Will the aliens come to their small Ohio town? What will they do when they arrive?
 
Inspired by Orson Welles’s historic War of the Worlds radio broadcast, which terrified people across the country, Newbery and Coretta Scott King Award winner Virginia Hamilton tells a gripping, imaginative, and humorous story about a Depression-era family on their day of reckoning.
