Overview

Alien Invasion and Other Inconveniences by Brian Yansky

Jesse is in history class when a formidable, efficient race of aliens quietly takes over the earth in less time than it takes him to brush his teeth. Most humans simply fall asleep and never wake up. In moments, everyone Jesse knows and loves is gone, and he finds that he is now a slave to an inept alien leader. On the bright side, Jesse discovers he’s developing telepathic powers, and he’s not the only one. Soon he’s forging new friendships and feeling unexpectedly hopeful. When a mysterious girl appears in his dreams, talking about escaping, Jesse begins to think the aliens may not be invincible after all. But if Jesse and his friends succeed, is there anywhere left to go? Brian Yansky offers a funny, grim novel packed with everything boys and sci-fi fans love: aliens, humor, action, and a healthy dose of triumph.

This is a great book. Will keep you wanting more at every turn. I hope there is a sequl, as the book ends abruptly in my opinion.

Jesse is having the worst day of his life. It took less time for the aliens to conquer Earth than it does for you to brush your teeth. Unfortunately, he can pick up on what the aliens say in his mind. This makes him a "superior," "hearing" product who is forced to work in the house of Lord Vetrenomous (the conquering alien lord) doing physical tasks to get the place ready for more aliens. Longing for escape, he makes friends with some people who want the same thing. He and his new friends - Lauren, Michael, Lindsey, and a mysterious girl from his dreams - struggle to find a means to do so until they get word of a successful rebellion rising up against the aliens. Who is the girl in his dreams? Is she real? How can Jesse and his friends defeat the aliens and escape? ALIEN INVASION & OTHER INCONVENIENCES is a great science-fiction adventure. Although the plot lags in places, the characters are well-developed and the story is intriguing. Those who like science fiction, fantasy, aliens, action, and adventure will all enjoy reading this book.
