Alien in My Pocket: Blast Off!

We rated this book:


One night, Zack woke up because a strange spaceship landed on his bed. He found an alien, named Amp, who tells Zack that his people are going to attack the earth the next day unless they fix his spaceship so he can go back to his planet and tell his people that the humans are too big to attack. Then Amp sneaked into Zack’s backpack and went with him to school. At school Amp disappeared, and when Zack left class to look for Amp, the principal found Zack snooping around. Olivia, Zack’s best friend, helped him get out of trouble. Olivia and Zack found Amp, and hid in a closet for the rest of the school day – and they didn’t learn anything! Then Olivia and Zack broke into the science room to get a magnet Amp said he needed to fix his ship. When they finally blasted the spaceship off, it came back down and didn’t work. So Olivia and Zack were very worried. Will they be able to get Amp back into space and save Earth?

Parts of this book were very funny, even though some parts are confusing. It would be a good book for someone who is a little older to read, but I really like it too. Amp is really funny and they get into trouble. I am having fun reading the second book now!
