    One thought on “Aliens in the Family”

    1. Evidently some people liked this book but not me. It gets off to a decent start, at first these seem like pretty good characters, but the sci-fi elements seem to lack imagination and it just gets sort of bland and boring.Then there are bits that just made me go "WHAT?!" or "HUH?" when I read them and that doesn't mean it has much mystery. I guess if it has a "HUH?!" factor it will keep you reading, some people like books that are really strange but it just goes from weird to kind of bland again. [...]

    2. The beginning was too slow and the ending was too fast. And who would write a book on this kind of stuff?? I probably would have liked this more if I could have just picked it up, read in an hour, and then put it back down and moved on with my life but we spent three months reading it in class. My favorite part about this book was getting a couple extra A's to avrage into my english grade that's about it. Once or twice I got in trouble when we were reading it out loud in class and I was called o [...]

    3. I picked this up at the library because a sticker on it said "give me a chance." The cover of the edition I read was much less scary! I have to admit, I couldn't put the little book down. Very fun read! Set in Australia. The "time" of the book jumps around a bit. Easy for an adult to follow, but I don't know about a young un'.

    4. This is a difficult book to read as the setting is in three different time periods. It can get a little confusing. I love it though because it really helps to show how setting can affect a story. I also find the message of the book to be awesome! Can't tell about it now though because my class is reading it.

    5. Read this as a kid after watching the CBBC drama adaptation :)Had to resort to a posting on a 'Does anybody remember this . . .' message board to finally get the title of the show/book!

    6. This little novel was okay but seriously lacking in vocabulary and decent character development. It was also a little childish for its intended age range.
