Dustin Cotter was a Sci-Fi/space fan. So you can imagine how happy he was when he found an alien spaceship after an asteroid storm outside his house. Dustin thought he would be famous because he was going to tell the newspapers about the ship. He dreamed of being famous until the alien inside, named Bok, asks him to keep him safe while he repairs his damaged ship.With the help of 2 new friends, Dustin decides to help Bok get back home. Things get more complex when a psycho on a motorcycle stops at nothing to find out what crashed near Dustin’s house!
This was a pretty good story. I like the Sci-Fi in it and that it is supposed to be realistic. Ms. Pickett’s writing style made it believable. Dustin was a good main character. He’s a nice, normal kid who loves astronomy and extraterrestrial life. I like that Bok was 14 in Earth years and that Dustin chose to do the right thing. The plot is well-written and action-packed! I think the cover art was just okay. The book was a very fast read for me and would make a great summer read for kids!
