Heather Roth has little to look forward to.
The alien overlords have enslaved Earth’s population. Her two sons are working for the cyborg underground and her brother is the head of the Benevolent Alien Reconciliation Federation (BARF), which seeks to create a more peaceful world through mind control. On top of all of this, Heather has a really nasty cold that just won’t go away.
And then she learns that her father is being paroled from the penal colony on Jupiter’s moon, Europa. Which, as it turns out, is really not a big deal because he’s being assigned to work as a cook on the aircraft carrier Nimitz, which has been repurposed as a floating sheep farm.
Then Heather finds an old guitar, learns three chords and leads a musical revolution based on Nickleback songs. The aliens leave.
A story of mathematics and free verse, Heather Girl takes the reader on the ultimate emotional journey, culminating in a long nap.
