Synopsis- Kevin Brewer and his science camp friends (Tara, Warner, and TJ) are at the best STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) Camp in America. Basically it’s a science summer camp for nerds. Alexander Russ has won the Invention Convention (a competition) four years in a row, and Kevin isn’t going to give up yet! It doesn’t help that Alexander is a snobby rich kid. So, to beat him, Kevin and the other Extraordinary Terrestials (Kevin’s team) must do the impossible! Getting their idea from a comic book, they decide to make a Galactascope – a device that can communicate with aliens! To their surprise – no one really expected it – an actual alien, named Mim, responds, and appears through the sky! But what if Mim isn’t all that he seems?

What I Liked- I LOVED THIS BOOK! The world that Mr. Kloepfer creates is pretty much my heaven – nerd science camp – with aliens! And just plain cool stuff! The plot is really good! I like how there is a great plot twist in it that was somewhat unexpected (when it happens, it feels like there is no foreshadowing, but after thinking back, I realized that there was). The characters were believable, and very realistic. Kevin is a normal geeky nerd. So are his friends. It is really cool how they all have a specialty. Looking forward to reading book 2!

I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms!fivebooks

    OK, so this is a must read for my son. He LOVES all things science and gadget-oriented. I think he and his father are planning to invent a space elevator. πŸ˜€ Thanks for the heads up!
