Never have aliens been this cool in this young adult book.The story is about a young alien called "John Smith" , John is not your average teenager.John is an Alien , and for an alien he is pretty awesome. The only trouble with living on earth as an alien is having to hide who you are and try and not be killed by those who are out to find you and blow you to smithereens . As you can see life is not easy for John even though he has a minder taking care of him. He spends a lot of time adjusting to new people and places as he has to move around a lot so he won't be found , yet he maintains a good personality and is very likeable . This book is an adrenaline rush and as you know someone is after him the pace stays very fast. I read this very quickly as I wanted to see were his pursuers going to reach him by the end of the book. I could not put this book down. It was SO good!
