The stars are talking back to me, I just know it.
Throughout Terrestrial Liddy looks to the stars to find herself, to help make sense of a world she’s too young to process. For her, aliens present a chance to escape a life that she didn’t ask for and knows that no one should want. She’s bored, and restless and scared. She’s suffocating. The stars present infinite possibilities.
