It feels like someone’s watching him He can hear breathing tooAnd just one word Help It’s a whisper and a scream all at onceIt’s been all grey days since losing his brother but ten year old Mylo Story has something else to think about now The strange metal debris with weird purple symbols and the charred earth where it hit out on Foster’s ranch during the loudest monsoon storm everAnd then there’s the voice that no one. This children s story was a real mixed bag in my opinion On one hand it did an excellent job in dealing with friendship grief neighborly concern God and faith Moreover it encouraged writing as a method of dealing with sad feelings On the other hand it had too much of what would be considered gross boy stuff and the character of Dibs was like a caricature in the beginning of the story Those two things are minor though compared to what I thought was the main problem of the book it is encouraging children to believe in conspiracy theories Author Melissa Savage takes conspiracy ideas that have been around for decades about the Roswell New Mexico UFO incident in the 1940s which all have been debunked and makes them seem legitimate in this book At least one person involved in the real Roswell incident is a character in this story too Now years ago I likely would have had little problem with a children s story of this nature but not today Critical thinking is obviously not being taught in many schools any longer and many adults are also obviously lacking in the ability to think critically I m not talking about critical thinking as defined by scientist but critical thinking that involves ceasing to believe things when there is a lot of evidence that what is being believed is not true That pertains to both things and people So many individuals in current times appear to believe that whatever they want to believe is the truth Children are learning from this too Believe whatever you want and disregard any facts that contradict your beliefs In this book the military is seen as evil and desperate to cover up the fact that aliens have landed on the Earth One high ranking soldier even threatens children getting right in their faces At least one child is manhandled The two retired military officers in the story are seen as good and kind and had to leave the military because they were good and kind Children lie to protect an alien and are encouraged to do so by adults Since uite a few characters have Mexican surnames it s hard not to wonder if this story is also actually an illegal alien one incognito Decades ago such a view of the military might have been accepted without uestion by many Today however it s the military that seems to be the trying to prevent abuse of power in this country It s the military that seems rational For example the military has had little interest in having a parade showing off their hot stuff a parade that the President of the United States wants A president who constantly abuses power lies and believes in conspiracy theories It was a retired Navy admiral who recently condemned the president for acting like a dictator and for embarrassing us in the eyes of our children In addition it s interesting to note that while the military and military officers in this story are bad the Catholic church and the local priest are good Abuse of children by Catholic priests in the 1940s has been documented That s not to suggest that all priest past and present should be suspect or that the Catholic church is bad but it s interesting to note where Melissa Savage is coming from Her author description states that she loves to learn and write about the mystery of cryptozoology for children Okay but is encouraging children to decide for yourself about a possible UFO crash in Roswell as she does on her website and writing a children book obviously supportive of Roswell conspiracy theories the same as encouraging children to wonder if the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot are real creatures somewhere out there I would say it s not the same Nessie and Bigfoot are imagined to be earthly creatures that possibly mankind does not know about Roswell was a real incident in the 1940s involving a nuclear test surveillance balloon and also involving aliens and conspiracy theories that have been debunked Children are thus being encouraged to disregard any and all debunking and to think whatever they want about the matter They are being encouraged to believe people who make up things people who lie The only adults I have ever met who intensely believe in aliens are those who are alienated from the human race The only adults I know who constantly lie are living a lie of one sort or another They do not want to deal with their addictions or secret lives or whatever and want others to believe their lies as well as lies bigger than the ones they tell There s some difference of course in how children think and believe Children often create fantasies because they need those fantasies to help them survive their childhood years They don t have the power of adulthood to change their lives Fantasy is fine encouraging children to wonder and study if life exists on other planets is fine but encouraging children to believe in conspiracy theories about real incidents is not Especially not in this centuryNote I received a free ARC of this book from Vine What Every Indian Should Know Before

    Mylo has moved to a small town near Roswell New Mexico to a ranch that is just as alien to him as a Martian  He does make a good friend Dibs who like him has smelly toes and is eleven  After his older brother has died Mylo sometimes wonders if there is to life and imagines that life would be better if Superman came to his house and save everyone  This story is smart insection of grief friendship and extraterrestrial

    I had problems with this book I wanted to believeAnd I was supposed to believe that there was extraterrestrial lifeBut my gosh it was like pulling teeth On one hand we had Mylo mourning his brother's death Then we had his friends hanging around with him uoting comic books and the token smart girlOnce we finally established that there was indeed a spaceship and an alien we had had to go back and forth and argue and discussI though

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm worried it's not going to get the recognition it deserves The cover and title are very much fitting with the story but I'm not sure its going to sell it The science fiction genre always comes in last place in student interest surveys and this book looks 100% science fiction Kids today run from the word m
