Publisher's Summary

A boy and his best friends set out to discover the aliens who crash-landed next to their Roswell, New Mexico, farm in this charming novel packed with adventure and heart, perfect for fans of Ali Benjamin's The Thing About Jellyfish and Jennifer L. Holm's The Fourteenth Goldfish.

Mylo never really believed in Martians, unless they had a starring role in one of his comic books. But then a flying saucer crash-lands next to his Roswell, New Mexico, ranch, and he starts to hear voices - like someone is asking for his help. 

With his best friend Dibs and crush Gracie by his side, and his Cracker Jack superhero membership card, a slingshot, and a small American flag - for peace - in tow, Mylo sets out on an epic adventure to investigate the crash and find the Martians. But he and his friends end up discovering more about the universe than they ever could have imagined.

Critic Reviews

"Lovers of historical fiction will be at home." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Reminiscent of E.T., this tale of curiosity, friendship, and community presents opportunities for discussion about the universe and our relationship to it." (Booklist)

"Mylo and Dibs make a charming pair with the comedic timing of Abbott and Costello, and when other supporting characters are added...the kids’ group dynamic has the appeal of an updated Little Rascals." (The Bulletin)
