Title: Country And The Rock
Author: S Willett
Publisher: Muse It Up Publishing
"I noticed a huge shadow covering the barn and inching toward me.
I searched the sky, wondering what created it; but there wasn't even so much as a cloud. Fear coursed through my veins, though I wasn't sure why. I left the wheelbarrow and ran to the front yard. The darkness crept toward me."
Synopsis: Twelve year old Sean West, also known as Country, discovers a young alien named Clicker has traveled from a distant universe to find out what it's like to be a boy from Earth. Soon Country and his buddies are showing their new friend all kinds of Earth-boy fun but it's not so easy keeping Clicker true identity a secret...especially when some thieving Venatici arrive from another planet.
Why you should read it: I was hesitant at first to try this book simply because I'm not a huge science fiction or supernatural kinda gal. This story is aimed at the 9-11 audience. I can see the elements of aliens, dirt bikes, and adventure capturing a pre-teen's interest. Ms. Willett does a good job of keeping her readers guessing as to the outcome and manages to end her story in a satisfying manner.
