Novelette about how biological packages from outer space infest the Earth. The story is told through the eyes of TendelÃ©o and her lover. TendelÃ©o is a Kenyan girl who grows up under the shadow of the alien threat, and manages to build her life despite all the odds stacked against her. I was initially a bit put off by the naif tone, but the story grew quickly on me. Good stuff.
