Deborah is starting to notice things about her best friend, Willy—like how cute he looks in his Halloween costume and the adorable way his red hair curls just above his collar. He's the coolest boy in sixth grade, and the closest friend she's got . . . that is, until her alien parents tell her she has to eat him for dinner. After all, she's an alien, too—even if she and her family do live in disguise.
Should she keep Willy alive and survive on forbidden hamburgers and chocolate . . . or point her tentacles at her best friend and gain approval from alien kind?
There are times when everyone feels like they're from outer space. A zany adventure and a close and sympathetic look at middle-school friendships and rivalries, Alethea Eason's wonderfully unique first novel satisfies that craving to fit in.
My 2 Cents
Cover. I must admit this was the exact reason why I decided to get my paws on it. Something bit earth and something has tentacles.. with spikes.
This book has been on the number one spot of the best book list in the papers for weeks and it turned out to be a page turner. It’s also humorous and fill with dilemma that any teens would face one day in their life.
Ok.. Not really face one day. I mean, hardly any teenager out there actually have to eat their best friend because it’s tradition or culture….I hope. =X
Otherwise, this would be an awesome book to read. It would be great to actually listen to the students read this book and laugh at the story =3
The only reason what I gave this as a 4 ♠ instead a full score is because it just has a “just satisfactory” ending. It could have been better.
