|Plot Summary of Alien Secrets |
|"Puck has been expelled from boarding school on Earth, so she's being sent back to her parents on planet Aurora. Traveling on the same space liner is a young alien Shoowa named Hush. Since Puck is the only other teenager on the ship, the captain asks if she would make friends with Hush. As she gets to know Hush he confides in her. He was bringing home the Soo, a sacred artifact that symbolizes freedom. The first night on the ship it was stolen from his room. Hush is devastated. He feels like he has failed his people. Puck thinks that the Soo may still be on the ship, so she decides to help Hush look for it. Unfortunately, that is not the only secret on this ship. A few nights into their journey one of the passengers wakes everyone up with her screams. She claims to have seen ghosts. The strange hyperspace navigator also sees ghosts. Then there are the two strange ladies who are very antagonistic toward Hush. As if that's not enough, there is also Mister Cubuk, who always is sneaking around and poking his nose into things. "
