Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It's nice to see an alien-invasion story where the aliens are not invulnerable.

Con: The story challenges suspension of disbelief over and over. Start with the idea that after an invasion that destroyed big cities and killed millions that anyone would care how a group of alien survivors was treated--no matter what their ages. Or that those who did care would care enough to threaten to disrupt life for the human survivors. Or if they did, that they wouldn't be treated as terrorists.
