Synopsis from Goodreads: It’s Superbad meets Spaceballs in this hilarious extraterrestrial road trip!
Just a few days before prom, Bennett pulls off something he never imagined possible: his dream girl, Sophie, agrees to be his date. Moments afterward, however, he watches Sophie get abducted by aliens in the middle of the New Mexico desert.
Faced with a dateless prom (and likely kidnapping charges), Bennett does the only thing he can think of: he catches a ride into outer space with a band of extraterrestrial musicians to bring her back.
Can he navigate alien concert venues, an extraterrestrial reality show, and the band’s outlandish egos to rescue his date in time for the big dance? Fans of King Dork and Winger won’t want to miss this!
Why I’m excited: Dude, what? That synopsis. Yes, please! This sounds hilarious and fun and silly and exactly like something I need to be reading. Sounds a little bit like Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – at least the silly, fun, imaginative, creative, and space-opera-y craziness that’s going on in that synopsis. I definitely think this is something I’ll like.
