It's just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He's daydreaming through another boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom - if he can make it that long without getting suspended again. Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer.

If you liked Ready Player One, your going to enjoy this book. Another nerditude mash up of movie, video game and music quote in the best sort of way. Kind of like a mash up of Ready Player One and Ender Game.
