What Came from the Stars by Gary D. Schmidt

The Valorim are about to fall to a dark lord when they send a necklace containing their planet across the cosmos, hurtling past a trillion stars . . . all the way into the lunchbox of Tommy Pepper, sixth grader, of Plymouth, Mass.
   Mourning his late mother, Tommy doesn't notice much about the chain he found, but soon he is drawing the twin suns and humming the music of a hanorah. As Tommy absorbs the art and language of the Valorim, their enemies target him. When a creature begins ransacking Plymouth in search of the chain, Tommy learns he must protect his family from villains far worse than he's ever imagined.

Being a book by Gary Schmidt, this is a compelling read with an authentic protagonist and lovely writing. That said, this is not Schmidt's typical realistic fiction. With the addition of an entire alien world--including chapters about them--this book is a bit of an outlier in Schmidt's body of work. The writing is still wonderful as is the story but it might not hit the mark for readers expecting a more realistic read typical of Schmidt's other novels.
