THE DANGEROUS DAYS OF DANIEL X
James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge

Once Daniel gets to be fifteen, he takes upon the role of being the Defender of Earth. He starts off playing this role by killing Orkng Jllfgna, the number 19 alien on the list, in the sewers of Portland, Oregon. Daniel was living by himself in Oregon, and he would “create” his family by using his brain, to keep him from being lonely. The Portland Runaway Juvenile Unit confronts Daniel at his house, and he barely passes their tests with his “imagined” parents.

Phoebe is new to the school as well, and Daniel ends up asking her to go on a date with him. One day when Daniel was looking for clues of Ergent Seth, he finds a child-slave and drug-dealing operation taking place. Daniel brainwashes the leader of the operation and goes on with his business. When Daniel returned home from school the next day, he
