Bud has just moved to a new town, and on his first morning he misses the regular bus and takes an alien school bus! Once he gets to the alien school, he learns that Earthlings are considered dangerous, and must pretend to be another alien. Complicating matters, the kind of alien he’s pretending to be is really good at sports, while he’s more scientifically inclined. He and his friend must figure out a way to both succeed at the ZeroBall tournament and get him back safely to Earth.

This book is great for anyone who likes humor, watching normal Earthling culture be portrayed as weird compared to alien culture. It’s also good for anyone who wants to see a story about friends who have to stick together to deal with the craziness of life at school that happens on any planet.
