David’s father is a psychologist who specializes in troubled teens. His current patient is Zelda, a beautiful girl in a bikini who claims she is an alien from an all-female planet, sent to find her one true mate (who happens to be Johnny Depp.) I was expecting a sort of “is she or isn’t she?” story, where we would end the book unclear as to whether Zelda was mentally ill or actually an alien. That question is answered about halfway through, when the book takes a decidedly old-school sci-fi turn. I would have preferred the uncertainty. A strange little book.
