Fourteen-year-old Lisa Daniels has never been interested in anything but photography. She wants to be a photo-journalist. But then Adam Bates -- weird Adam Bates who claims to be an alien from another planet, who lives in a ramshackle cabin in the country -- joins her science class. Suddenly Lisa -- normal Lisa Daniels who does well in school, who runs with the right crowd -- finds herself falling in love.
