MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
I loved this sweet take on aliens. This book reminds me that not everyone is bad and not everyone is good.
My favorite characters are all of them because they all have an important role to play throughout the book.
My favorite parts are when the characters make jokes or talk about Dancers because it makes me start crying while laughing at the same time!
I recommend this book to every reader because it is an amazing book that has your emotions spinning and switching with every page.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11 and up.
