Publisher's Summary

In this much anticipated sequel to The True Meaning of Smekday, Tip and J.Lo are back for another hilarious intergalactic adventure. And this time (and last time, and maybe next time), they want to make things right with the Boov. 

After Tip and J.Lo banished the Gorg from Earth in a scheme involving the cloning of many, many cats, the pair is notorious - but not for their heroics. Instead, human Dan Landry has taken credit for conquering the Gorg, and the Boov blame J.Lo for ruining their colonization of the planet. Determined to clear his name, J.Lo and Tip pack into Slushious, a Chevy that J.Lo has engineered into a fairly operational spaceship, and head to New Boovworld, the aliens' new home on one of Saturn's moons. 

But their welcome isn't quite as warm as Tip and J.Lo would have liked. J.Lo is dubbed Public Enemy Number One, and Captain Smek knows that capturing the alien is the only way he'll stand a chance in the Boovs' first-ever presidential election. 

With the help of a friendly flying billboard named Bill, a journey through various garbage chutes, a bit of time travel, and a slew of hilarious Boovish accents, Tip and J.Lo must fight to set the record straight - and return home in once piece. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Turpin's enthusiastic narration is genius. She gives voice to humans, aliens, a parrot, and a robot; handles Rex's wordplay and the Boov's muddled English; and creates her own sound effects with apparent ease and flair. Turpin's reading enhances everything funny, smart, clever, silly, and subtle about the storytelling. It's an absolute listening delight." (AudioFile)

Too complicated... I think.

This story doesn't have a simple and elegant plot like the first one did. The first one focused on how two strangers became friends, acquired an alien artifact and used it to save the world. Simple, and elegant. This is just another of Tip and Jay-lo's improbable adventures, forced into a happy ending by luck, and an oddly specific series of events.

Just plain hilarious the dialogue and story is awesomely funny. It makes you look at alien invasions differently

Great 2nd story for JLo and Tip

Loved this book. I listen to it regularly, it's light-hearted and I can listen to it while the kids are around.

Would highly recommend this book to all who enjoyed the first book and/or the film.
