    Summary

    After meeting the Umbrella Academy back in 1963 Reginald Hargreeves decides he can’t make them his ideal superhero team – but nor can he let them put it, or the world, at risk. So he takes them in and hides them away, just for safety’s sake, and if they prove to be useful tools in other ways, all the better.

    They grow up as the ‘Other Ones’, locked up in the mansion to deal with Hargreeves’s machinations and plans. But he underestimates them and all the things they’re capable of, and most of all he underestimates that they’re never going to give up on each other, no matter what.

    Summary

    If only Lila would say something to him, anything. Let him see her, even for a moment. He couldn’t forget her, couldn’t be rid of her, couldn’t have her. And it was driving Diego mad with worry, sick with longing. He loved her, he hated her, he just wanted her to stop running long enough for him to catch up, so they could be on even footing, so he could say something, anything, anything at all.

    Most of all, he just missed her.

    It turns out, saving the world from the apocalypse - twice - and time traveling was the easy part. Now back in their restored timeline of 2019, the Hargreeves siblings have to figure out a way to rebuild their lives as a family. Easier said than done, especially for Diego, who can’t stop looking over his shoulder for Lila Pitts. But when she does finally appear, she’s scared and confused. These people offered to be her family, but can they really? And even as she runs back to Diego after every encounter, it becomes clear that nothing he can say or do will entice her to stay. The only person who can stop Lila from running is herself.
