Finalist for the First Book Award with the High Plains Book Awards Kansas NEA Reading Circle List High School TitleA high school outcast spends his life hoping to be abducted by aliens in this funny uirky novel about finding your footing in a world that sometimes feels like Mars Convinced his mother has been abducted by aliens Cha Check out my blog for reviews and fun bookish stuff This was one of those books that I picked up in a random buy a thon in Barnes and Noble The blurb called to me aliens in Montana? I’m writing a book about aliens in Montana so this was basically reuired readingSlight spoiler but I think you really ought to know this heading into the book in the end Earth to Charlie turned out to be much of a contemporary book than anything approaching sci fi That was a bit of a disappointment to me; it’s not the first time this year that I’ve been teased with YA aliens only for the author to not follow through But nevertheless I finished this book within one sitting which should speak for itself in terms of the easy readability of this book It’s a comfy page turner with a small cast and a cozy small town setting I’m still searching for YA aliens but I’ll recommend Earth to Charlie to fans of contemporary coming of age fiction especially if you’re looking for an LGBT thread

Earth to CharlieRlie Dickens spends his nights with an eye out for UFOs hoping to join her After all she said the aliens would come back for him Charlie will admit that he doesn’t have many reasons to stick around; he doesn’t get along well with his father he’s constantly bullied at school and at work and the only friend he has is his 600 p What a terrific read I felt profound sympathy for the highly likable MC Charlie He's so unhappy with his life that he longs to be abducted by aliens and reunited with his mother His sadness and loneliness are beautifully depicted and the supporting cast of characters is strong and interesting I had no idea where the story was headed but I was completely satisfied with the ending Sweet and powerful this book is well worth reading and I feel that anyone can relate to Charlie Fantastic debut novel
