Additional Information

Andy McBean is struggling to survive middle school in the soggy hills of the Pacific Northwest. He’s messy, fearful of bullies, and spent much of the last year in the hospital battling leukemia.
Then one night a meteor storm devastates the county, cutting off power and communications. One giant meteor crashes into his neighborhood, skidding up the street to stop right on Andy’s front lawn. The glowing boulder draws the attention of neighbors, the media, the army, and even the new girl from Andy’s art class. He is thrilled at the notoriety, but everything changes when the meteor opens and a towering machine steps out.
Separated from his family, Andy must fend for himself and rescue his friends. Join the adventure as Andy meets an alien, learns what they want on planet earth, and devises a bold plan to stop them.

Chose this to read aloud to my sons 8,9,12 overall a good message about learning from your own struggles to help you show compassion to others. Other than a few negative name calling sections this book was "clean" and the content appropriate/enjoyable for a tween.
Overall a fun sci-fi adventure for middle-grade readers. Nicely plotted and only a few minor edits needed for missing punctuation or letters/words. Characters were relatable. Aliens just the right mix of menace and "possible friends" for target audience. One quibble: I felt a bit cheated as a reader knowing before the main characters what the aliens wanted. Would have been better, IMO, if we'd had to figure that out along with them.
This is a good book for young readers. The characters are believable, well except for the alien and the key man, and I really liked how the secondary characters were developed. They were not just 'Red Shirts'. I did think the book failed at the very end when aliens, who had such poor technology that they passed up the thousands of better water sources in this solar system to land on Mars and landed in the Pacific Northwest instead of the middle of the Great Lakes, developed a grabber machine so sophisticated that it could communicate telepathically with a kid after minutes of exposure. Read it and don't think about the science too much. This is not science fiction but nice kid fiction. I admit I am dying to know if Dave survived.
