How I saved the world in a week

Ho-Yen, Polly2021
Even when you can't believe what you're seeing, you'd better get ready to run for your life, because the Greys have come to town. Billy's mum isn't like other mums. He calls her Sylvie, they move house every few months and she spends all their time together teaching him The Rules of Survival - how to make fire, build shelter and find food. Following the Rules is the only thing Sylvie asks of Billy and the tests get more extreme - until one day she goes too far. Whilst Sylvie is getting better, Billy has to live with the dad he's barely met. At Dad's, Billy misses his mum and keeps practicing the Rules, but he also learns new things, like how it feels to make a friend and be part of a different type of family. And then the world changes forever.
