This one book cover (First Day On Earth) made me think of this other (I’ll Be There):
Maybe, a passing resemblance.
First Day On Earth by Cecil Castellucci is new to the library. Mal disappeared for three days a few years ago. People think he had a breakdown, but Mal has a feeling he was abducted by aliens. At a support group of alien abductees he meets Hooper, who knows some mysterious, out of this world secrets. The truth is out there.
I’ll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan was one of our picks of 2011, in which Sam and Riddle live an anonymous, disconnected life on the run with their rather awful father, until one day Sam hears Emily giving a truly awful rendition of “I’ll be there” by the Jackson Five, which leads to a long, harrowing journey towards discovering a legitimate place in the world.
