Alienated

Created by: David O. Russell
For Ages: 8 - 12
Aliens are among us, and eighth-graders Gene and Vince regularly report on their existence via the Globe, their weekly tabloid. Most readers don’t take the articles seriously, but when the pair outs the school guidance counselor as a closet alien, their story gets a lot of attention—of the wrong kind. Gene and Vince are suddenly at the center of an intergalactic conflict, one that could be the death of their friendship—and of the boys themselves.

Ample humor and inventive storytelling make for a hilarious, surprising adventure that will keep readers glued to every page.
