Discovering a girl under his bed isn’t the strangest thing happening to Spencer. Mandy, an extraterrestrial, has been hiding out ever since the jet she stowed away on crashed in the desert. She asks him to rescue the pilot from Edwards Air Force Base and help them get back home with the one thing their civilization needs to survive. When he finds out what they’ve really come to Earth for, he’s shocked and confused. Helping them now has bigger implications — not just for Earth!

On the run from soldiers, fighter jets and attack helicopters, Spencer and his family must decide if they will help Mandy get home with what she came for and how much they are willing to sacrifice to help her.

About the Author

Syd Blue had her 1st flying lesson on her 14th birthday. Now she’s a commercial pilot living a life in the skies. As Chief Pilot running an aviation business specializing in aerial surveillance, she sees the expansive view from above throughout the Southwest. On the ground, she produced, wrote, directed and edited everything from documentaries, TV shows, commercials, and articles for TV stations, production companies, book publishers, national magazines and international news websites.

Home base is an island of swirling plastic in the middle of the Pacific with her shining-star husband, three sparkling dog-cat hybrids (at least they think they are) and a silky seal-skin jet prototype.

Austin S.’s mom wrote that 13-year-old Austin, “he declared Circle his favorite book of all time — even better than Twilight.”

Reviews from GoodReads.com (4.38 stars average out of 5):

Brandon wrote: “It was a very interesting take on the classic kind of coming of age tale. We have our protagonist Spencer who as the novel opens is a couch potato whose only motivation for spending any time outside is to spy on his mischievous older brother Nick. Spencer comes off as a bit of a momma’s boy who doesn’t have the ability to really connect with other children, however he does seem to be very intelligent and a quick thinker (reminding me of myself as a child). Then we have the force of corruption and trouble in the form of older brother Nick. His schemes have put in on the radar of the entire town as being a trouble maker and no good. The kids are quickly put in a setting where they witness the crash landing and collection of an alien air craft by the U.S. air force. This brings the Cass family into contact with a girl from another world Mandy, who needs their help to rescue the pilot of her craft Jazz Lee from Edwards air force base. Over the course of the story I thought it was a lively and interesting take on the idea of growing up and whether or not to do the right thing. My only criticism of the work that I feel is exhibited throughout the novel is the pace. I feel like with all the themes that are addressed and all of the events that take place, not to mention character building and motivations one book is simply not long enough to do the job properly. This story could easily have been turned into a trilogy to give all the characters the depth they deserve.”

Amy wrote: “This is a t.book that I won from Goodreads. It is appropriate for young teenagers, but I am happy that I read it.
Extra terrestrials have come down earth to gather up what they need to bring back to their planet Circle. They become involved with teens on earth and the government trying to get the item to help save their planet.”

    This book is a lot of fun. It is aimed at the teen-age crown without being puerile. It is action packed without being melodramatic. The book starts off with a very a very fast plot and grows more suspenseful as the book progresses. It’s a great read.

    Reading Circle brought me back to my childhood! It was wonderful. I didn’t want to put it down. Normally I’m very analytical and rational, but Syd brought me back to a world of possibility, idealism, and excitement!

    I thought the plot was good. And in fact, the way the plot unfolded was very good. Anticipation was great — I really wanted to see how Spencer and Mandy got out of the mess they were in.

    Characters were likable (and hate-able!!). Syd is very clever in her character development. I was pleased to see the hero giving their best effort, and cringed when they had to deal with the ugly part of themselves. And being that the story is about an alien, I thought Syd did a great job of creating something I could digest – she didn’t have to rely on unicorn horns or octopus arms to tell the story. My imagination could take what she offered and run with it playfully. Really good work here, Syd.

    There’s just so many good things about this book. I recommend it for anyone who wants a fun read and has any drop (stain? I know, sometimes a curse!!) of idealism in their hearts. Syd sees the best we have to offer as a society and weaves it into the book in clever shadows of what could be a better reality for us all.
    Awesome awesome. If you have a pulse, I think you’ll enjoy it. And if you have a kid, it’s your responsibility to get them thinking about the world this way.
