Book Synopsis

Stolen music? Stolen humans? All teenagers feel like aliens. Maybe they are! When a student in seventh grade is kidnapped, there is only one suspect, a nerd with a crush on her. Find out in this rocking journey to the stars and back.

This brief, zesty tale is loaded with musical references for the whole family. It is approachable for those who aren't yet lovers of reading, but there are still rhythmic and poetic concoctions to dazzle bibliophiles. Bell's novella blends a kidnapping, a love story, aliens, and teenage issues into a wild spaceship ride for the reader.

An imaginative adventure story which, through its use of music, may entice younger readers to look into listening to some of the older "classic"rock tunes referenced. And perhaps older readers to listen to some of the newer tunes referenced also? And it reminds me personally of how much we all have in common, as most of us have at one time or another in our lives felt out of place or like we were somehow different or "alien". The book also shows how music can bring people together. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Every time I put this book down, I had a serious earworm with some blasts from the past! What a great way to encourage reading while also teaching classic tunes.
Can't wait to read more from this author.

Great use of pop culture references. Guaranteed to keep my students engaged and I'll get to listen to some great songs from my childhood during the lesson.
