Suzy is blossoming into a vivacious young woman. And Vicky has become closer to Emily Gregory, a blind and brilliant young musician, than to her sister Suzy. With the Austins going in different directions, they don't notice that something sinister is going on in their neighborhood—and it's centered around them. A mysterious genie appears before Rob and Emily.
A stranger approaches Vicky in the park and calls her by name. Members of a local gang are following their father. The entire Austin family is in danger. If they don't start telling each other what's going on, someone just might get killed. Intergalact… More…. Intergalactic P.

I used to be afraid to go back up, but now the apartment is you, all of you, the Austins … Well. I forgot to brush my teeth. Be right back. This was the first time Emily had ever talked about her blindness, or had referred, even directly, to the accident that had caused it.
But Emily had moved far beyond her last thought. She sounded impatient. The one Rob said had no eyebrows. If I remember correctly, the Micro-Ray was an early laser. At the time she wrote it, of course, she had no idea that kids would have laser pointers to play with. Which makes it dated, but prescient. That dude can write. You can guess why.
