Brandon wrote: “It was a very interesting take on the classic kind of coming of age tale. We have our protagonist Spencer who as the novel opens is a couch potato whose only motivation for spending any time outside is to spy on his mischievous older brother Nick. Spencer comes off as a bit of a momma’s boy who doesn’t have the ability to really connect with other children, however he does seem to be very intelligent and a quick thinker (reminding me of myself as a child). Then we have the force of corruption and trouble in the form of older brother Nick. His schemes have put in on the radar of the entire town as being a trouble maker and no good. The kids are quickly put in a setting where they witness the crash landing and collection of an alien air craft by the U.S. air force. This brings the Cass family into contact with a girl from another world Mandy, who needs their help to rescue the pilot of her craft Jazz Lee from Edwards air force base. Over the course of the story I thought it was a lively and interesting take on the idea of growing up and whether or not to do the right thing. My only criticism of the work that I feel is exhibited throughout the novel is the pace. I feel like with all the themes that are addressed and all of the events that take place, not to mention character building and motivations one book is simply not long enough to do the job properly. This story could easily have been turned into a trilogy to give all the characters the depth they deserve.”
