#1 Favorite Book And My Birthday

19 Sep

So my favorite book of all time is… Drum roll!The Only Alien on the Planet by Kristen D. Randle

The Only Alien on the Planet

by Kristen D. Randle

I first picked up this book when I was in middle school. It was in the teen section and I was on a Sci-fi high (not a Sci-fi book). I saw the cover and instantly thought, yes! And then I took it home to read. Not only is it not a sci-fi book about a lonely alien trying to get back home, it’s not your average teen read. At least that’s what I thought when at eleven I wanted to read it over and over again. I grinned, my eyes got teary, I got angry, all from this book. The new cover… I’ll admit, not a fan of.

New Cover:

The Only Alien on the Planet by Kristen D. Randle

Smitty Tibbs is the boy who doesn’t speak, doesn’t laugh, and students avoid him like the plague. Ginny Christianson has just moved to town and doesn’t realize there are unspoken rules about interaction with Smitty. With her persistent curiosity Ginny is able to unmask a secret about Smitty some would have rather kept hidden. I love this book and still re-read my battered copy.

EDITED: And! Today happens to be my 21st birthday! And I was sick all day… Yay!

    Loren – this is one of the best reviews of my book I have ever read. I just stumbled across it. Holy cats! Thanks. And happy belated (how many years ago did you write this?) birthday! I’m doing a new website – not really meant to be up yet, but it’s going to have some chapters of other books not yet published and some other stuff on it.

    So, if you’d like to drop by there – maybe in a week (if I get going) – say hi and tell me what you think. I can’t tell you how heartened I was by this review.
