review 1: Another great book from Miss Castellucci. More serious than Odd Duck or the Plain Janes, the author takes us into the mind of Mal, the school outcast/"weirdo" as he struggles with a crappy home life and possible memories of being abducted by aliens.The book keeps up the tension of whether we should believe Mal or his new friend, a homeless guy Hooper who might be a stranded E.T.Ending had a nice twist that seemed surprising yet inevitable. I also enjoyed the sparse first-person narration that brings us into Mal's confusing and frustrating world.
