If you like to read about aliens, this is the right book for you. In the book there is a little boy name Richard, and his mom just got a new boyfriend. Richard doesn't really like him. One night Richard's old friend Aric, a little alien came by and told him that another bad Alien was coming to earth to take over. On the top of Richard's head he thought it was his mom's new boyfriend. One day Richard was just about to get on the bus and he saw some kids inhailing the exhaust from the back of the bus, but know one else saw them. At the end of the day Richard walked home from school and there was a big oil spill and his mom's boyfriend was swimming in it. When he got home he told his what he had saw, and she thought he was lying so she told him to take a nap.
