We Come in Peace is a young adult story about two aliens Zolar and Jupel who crash land in the desert near Area 51 in Nevada. They are searching for their comrade who disappeared years earlier when he was on an exploratory mission on earth. Lucky for them they are rescued by Bobby Drews, a pot-smoking teenager, who takes them home to his dysfunctional family. Bobby introduces them as Jane and John.

Bobby in desperation enlists the aid of John to alter his school grades but things go haywire when the potion John creates and gives to the faculty has adverse side affects
