Unidentified Flying Objectsby Jim Collins
Initially published under the pseudonym Currer Bell in 1847, Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre erupted onto the English literary scene, immediately winning the devotion of many of the world's most renowned writers, including William Makepeace Thackeray, who declared it a work "of great genius." Passionate, dramatic, and surprisingly modern, Jane Eyre endures as one of the world's most beloved novels. This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes a new Introduction by Diane Johnson, the National Book Award-nominated author of many novels, including Le Mariage and Le Divorce.
The timeless story of Jane Eyre has arrived on Broadway as a spectacular new musical from an all-star production team, consisting of John Caird (Les Misérables, Nicholas Nickleby), who adapted and staged (with Scott Schwartz); composer Paul Gordon; designer John Napier (Cats, Les Misérables, Sunset Boulevard); costume designer Andreane Neofitou (Les Misérables, Miss Saigon); and lighting designers Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer, six-time winners of the Tony8482; Award.

This Sci-Fi book's setting is mainly around the morning or the afternoon in the warm seasons in the mid and late 1900s. Kenneth Arnold, a pilot and deputy federal marshal, was sent on a rescue mission but he found something that couldn't believe his eyes. He saw a group of unidentified flying objects. On that day of Kenneth Arnold's flight, Fred Johnson, a prospector, looked up and saw 5 saucer-shaped disks fly overhead. In the summertime of June 28, 1947, pilot Armstrong saw 6 unusual disks. Hours later, dozens of watchers saw four strange lights over Montgomery, Alabama. This book is mainly about the explanation of UFOs and people who experienced them. My favorite part was the book was the fact that some people think the Egyptians didn't build the first pyramids without the help of space travelers because I used to think back in social studies class that it was impossible the Egyptian workers built that entire structure. My opinion of this book is it really held onto my interest all the way through and found many facts that I didn't even know about. I didn't know Ken Arnold devised the phrase "UFO". I would highly recommend this book for ages 9+ because kids especially will be interested in UFOs.
