Can an anxious eleven-year-old finally find her chill and save her family from creepy aliens? Only if she’s the most awesome, super-brave astronaut since Spaceman Spiff! So take a deep breath, grab your sidekick, hop in a pod, and blast off with Jillian to Parasite Planet.

Fierce, blazing, brilliant.

—Jacqueline West, New York Times–bestselling author of The Books of Elsewhere

Eleven-year-old Jillian hates surprises. Even fun ones make her feel all panicky inside.

Jillian’s always dreamed of joining her space-explorer parents on a mission. Now it’s Take Your Kid to Work Day, and she finally has her chance to visit an alien planet! Why isn’t she excited?

When Jillian feels unprepared, she gets scared. Really scared. But she really wants to be a daring adventurer!

So Jillian sets off with her parents to Planet 80 Uma, it’s supposed to be an easy camping trip. But then the local wildlife starts acting super weird…

It’s Jillian versus Parasite Planet, and Jillian is determined to win!

Nicole Kornher-Stace is the author of the Norton Award finalist, Archivist Wasp, and its sequel, Latchkey, which are about a postapocalyptic ghosthunter, the ghost of a near-future supersoldier, and their adventures in the underworld. She has two more books due out in 2021: the sci-fi thriller, Firebreak, and of course, Jillian Vs. Parasite Planet. You can find Nicole on Twitter @wirewalking, where she is probably semicoherently yelling about board games, video games, hiking, aromantic representation, good books she’s read recently, or her cat. She lives in New Paltz, New York with her family.
