What happens when an antisocial cinephile meets up with the worldly new guy at school a quickwitted artist whos savvy enough to see through her scifi disguise? Meet Egg. Her real name is Victoria Jurgen, but shes renamed herself after the kickass heroine of her favorite scifi movie, TERMINAL EARTH. Like her namesake, Egg dresses all in white, colors her eyebrows, and shaves her head. She always knows the right answers, shes always in control, and shes far too busy taking photos for the school paper, meeting with the Science Fiction and Fantasy Club, and hanging out at the creature shop with her dad, the specialeffects makeup wizard to be bothered with friends, much less members of the opposite sex. As far as Egg is concerned, shes boy proof, and she likes it that way. But then Egg meets a boy named Max, a boy whos smart and funny and creative and cool . . . and happens to like Egg. Could this be the end of the world at least as Egg knows it?
