Mere minutes after arriving at their Nantucket family beach home, nine-year-old Scotty Sullivan was out the back door, scrambling toward the shore with Larry, the family dog, fast on his heels. Late in the afternoon in mid-spring, the typical summer beach crowd visitors were still weeks away. Suddenly, Scotty became aware of an odd-looking object, hovering just above the crashing surf. In an age of hobbyist’s drones and all sorts of flying gadgets, he wasn’t overly concerned until the large flying object moved much, much, closer.

INEXCUSABLE to write such a great book and then stop it right in the middle of a thought!!! Doesn't have Book 2 ready for us to buy. I give the book the best I can, but the author's judgement a zero

The man on Locke's arm has been identified as Dylan Prescott, the sexy new "it" model currently featured in the latest Calvin Klein ads. Sources tell us the men met on the set of Locke's upcoming action film Insurrection 2, and that "they only have eyes for each other." This is the first public gay relationship for Locke, who came out a year ago, and there has been much speculation on who would finally be the one to catch his eye.

The story is well put together, and this narrator is wonderful !! Often fiction stories are 'over-emoted', but this one is done perfectly

Being dragged through a mirror, naked and screaming, onto an extraterrestrial ship was bad. Finding out I had been sold to a huge alien male who looks like the devil was worse. But learning he wanted to trade me to an intergalactic petting zoo was the worst of all! Now I'm whizzing through the galaxy with a robot butler, a trio of nib-nibs (they're like tiny green monkeys), and one huge, muscular, and very grumpy alien.

This is the first of 4 books in this series, and I'm more than ready for the next one. I love the easy style of Anderson's writing without it being simplistic. I've already purchased the next 3 books.

As for the performance - I forgot I was listening to someone read the book to me - which is the highest praise, and I was totally immersed in the story all day. Yup, listened to it all in one day.
