It never opened its doors, and for all that time, the towns people have wondered why the ship landed there, and what - or who could be inside. Then one day, a government operative - posing as a journalist - arrives in town, asking questions. He discovers sixteen year old Annie Collins, one of the ship's closest neighbours, and a local fixture, known throughout the town, has some of the answers. As a matter of fact, Annie Collins might be the most important person on the planet. She just doesn't know it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An Amazon "Best Book of the Month"

"Doucette delights with this wonderful example of speculative fiction...[and] writes winning characters who read like real people, and Sorrow Falls is similarly credible. The head-spinning ideas both power the narrative and invite the reader to think hard, while plenty of humor and action move the plot along. This excellent work will appeal to readers from middle school through adulthood."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

"Doucette's genial, leisurely novel feels like a throwback to the squeaky clean science fiction of the mid-20th century... the town is vividly realized and described...[and] Doucette's dry sense of humor and obvious affection for his characters go a long way... a warmhearted ode to a simpler time and place in a community so small that everybody knows everybody else's business."--Kirkus

"An enormously enjoyable first contact story you won't forget from a talented new voice in sci-fi!"
--A.G Riddle, best-selling author of The Atlantis Gene and Pandemic
