Synopsis

Your Alien Returns by Tammi Sauer

Come along on an out-of-this-world experience! In this heart-warming sequel to the critically acclaimed Your Alien, it's the human boy's turn to visit the extra-terrestrial's home planet - and to feel like an outsider. But with a little help from the very best friend in the whole universe, our young hero finds a way to fit in. Like the two irresistible characters, readers will have the ride of their lives.
