Ally: Her real name is Alpha but everyone calls her Ally. She was homeschooled all her life, so she read a lot of books. Ally likes the simple things in life like labyrinths, star-gazing, and comet-hunting. Her home, the Moon Shadow campground, is part of who she is.
Bree: She grew up in a family of geniuses. She was the complete opposite though. She didn't care about science or math. She was popular, gorgeous, and a future homecoming queen. Bree wears her beauty like a suit of armor.
Jack: He's overweight and extremely awkward. He spends most of his time alone.
The Moon Shadow Family campground was owned by Ally's family. People from all over the world would come out to watch the Great Eclipse.
They're used to having around 200 people out here during this time of year. This time was way different though. They were looking at about 1,000 people!
Ally, Bree, and Jack meet at the one place you can see the Great Eclipse in totality. Each are carrying the burden of different personal problems.
To keep campers entertained they have to come up with a variety of different things to keep people occupied. The first thing is the labyrinth.
Ally's family created 5 other unusual. One being where campers can pan for gold in a small stream that runs along side the campground.
The next unusual is the Art House where you can paint where ever on the walls. Kenny swears the Art House is haunted. The back room of the Art house is Alien central where campers can monitor the computer that sweeps the sky for alien radio transmutation all day long
Their personal problems become dim when compared to the task they encounter and the friendship they find.
