Gilbert always longed for adventure, but now that he has it, he’s not sure that it’s everything it’s cracked up to be. Ever since the night he met Aoleon the Martian Girl sitting in the middle of a crop circle in Farmer Johnson’s field, it’s been nothing but one wild ride after another.

I actually really liked this book!
It was something I love to read about in school. The author of this book is Brent LeVasseur and the genre of this book would be science fiction. This book is about a martian girl named Aoléon. Gilbert Sullivan is the main character of this book and he wished for a place where there isn’t any trouble. Well to his surprise, Aoléon answered his call. She took him on a wild adventure! I won’t say any more or I will spoil the book for people who are going to read this book.
I would rate this book from ages 10 and older. Some things in this book were confusing. For instance, when the book started stating all these different types of jets. It was also sort of confusing how the point of view changes between 3 perspectives. Other than that, this book was great! It was exciting and adventurous. This book also had very good and colorful pictures! I had a great time reading this book.
