The story of Alex Woods really begins in space. The journey from asteroid to meteorite, from precocious boy to searching young man, is a rocky one. Unexpected friendships, the insatiable curiosity of young boys and the infinite intricacies of the human mind collide in this hilarious coming-of-age-tale. Let Alex tell you (in his own exasperating, charming and surprisingly wise voice) how one unexpected crash landing can change everything. This fun but thought-provoking read is reminiscent of Jess Walter and John Green.
