Andy McBean and the War of the Worlds (The Amazing Adventures of Andy McBean) by Dale Kutzera

What could be worse than middle school?  Home work, band class, bullies, a new kid who just might be a new friend...Andy McBean is struggling to survive it all in the soggy hills of the Pacific Northwest. Even worse, he spent much of the past year in the hospital battling leukemia. 
    Then one night a meteor storm devastates the county, cutting off power and phones. One giant rock crashes into Andy's neighborhood, skids up the street, and stops right on Andy’s front lawn. The towering boulder draws the attention of neighbors, the media, the army, and even the new girl from Andy’s art class. He is thrilled at the notoriety, but everything changes when the meteor opens and a towering machine steps out. 
    Separated from his family, Andy must fend for himself and rescue his friends. Join the adventure as Andy meets an alien, devises a plan to stop the invasion, and learns how strong he really is.

The “boy who had cancer,” Andy McBean, lives in the damp and soggy Pacific Northwest and plays Zoink with “the boy who played clarinet.” Meanwhile Been’Tok is a rather bored underling Worker, mining water from Mars. And the worlds are filled with misfits. Author Dale Kutzera creates a convincing modern day school, peopled with band-players, goths, school nurses, and more, adding dialog with just the right touch, “barf-face” “Dweeb” and “Geek” bandied around between teens. The only problems are bullies and girls until something mysterious flies overhead. Then Andy McBean gets involved in a War of Worlds. Echoes of the novel’s more famous predecessor ring through the pages of this fast-told tale. Scenes come to life with immediately practical details, such as whether to leave a note after drinking a neighbor’s milk, and the pleasing humor of an alien’s misconceptions of human life keep the tone light and fun. Of course, boy and girl have plenty of misconceptions about each other’s interests too—they might almost be alien as well! Once the action starts, this tale’s a page-turner of death-defying excitement, friendship, honor and trust; a thoroughly enjoyable middle-grade/young adult tale which truly offers something for everyone. Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review.
