In 1999, seven-year-old Theo has been uprooted to live with his grandparents at the opposite end of the country. As the countdown to the year 2000 begins, Theo is increasingly worried about the arrival of the Millennium Bug. Is it an illness, an alien, or the end of the world? When something crashes in the back garden one night, events are set in motion that will change the world as Theo knows it forever. Perhaps his imagination, fuelled by the covers of his Aunt Nina's favourite sci-fi novels, has run away with him. Or perhaps something really is lurking in the mist.
Years later, in 2020, a grown-up Theo contends with a world gripped by a very different, and far more dangerous bug. As he reflects on his childhood, the interesting characters he met in the old graveyard, and what it means to be alien, the line between past and present begins to blur.
