The Only Alien on the Planet

So I finished this book like a week ago but forgot to post. So here are a few of my comments:

I actually enjoyed this book. I was a little worried at the beginning. I like the idea of how it illustrated the importance of friends. Without his friends, he might never have talked.

I enjoyed how it told a story but had a moral and I was connected on an emotional level. I felt for the girl who's family moved. I felt for the boy he didn't talk.

So is anyone else done??

NEW Book!!!

Sorry, guys.....just one of the many things that has slipped my mind these days....

Okay, so for my pick, I'm going with some young adult fiction. This is an old favorite of mine. I first read it MANY years junior high, I think, and I even went to a discussion group attended by the author. It was cool. Moving on, the book is:
The Only Alien on the Planet

By Kristin D. Randle
If you can't find it at the library, has a bunch for $0.75 plus $3.49 in shipping if you feel that is worth your while. Oh, and it's also being re-released this year with new cover art - which, incidently, I'm not so crazy about....
Anyway, go at it!


Okay, Heath, we're ready for your book choice. And may I say that now that my baby and I are both healthy and home - but on house arrest until JUNE (when RSV season is over) - Mommy could use a book with some adult conversation attached when she's done. :) Hurry!! Quit making spaghetti squash and pick a bloody book! :)

P.S. Also I love you.
