Earthling! by Mark Fearing, Tim Rummel , 248 pages, read by Angie, on 07/14/2012

So Bud misses the bus to school, but a bus just happens to come and he jumps on hit. Unfortunately, the bus takes him to a school in OUTER SPACE! At this school Earthlings are hated and feared so Bud pretends to be a Tenarian. His new school is just like any other: there are bullies and outcasts and Bud has to learn to fit in. Soon he and his new friends are trying to figure out a way to get him back to Earth.

This was a fun outer space romp. I loved the illustrations and the story. Great aliens that reminded me a bit of the variety of aliens from Star Wars. This was a fun story that I think middle schoolers are going to really enjoy.
