What's The New Kid About

Publisher Summary

In the first book of the Alien Next Door series, an alien boy named Zeke tries to fit in and adjust to life on Earth, while a classmate, Harris, suspects that Zeke might not be quite what he claims to be. Zeke the alien is on his way to his first day of school, feeling down because he has to start over again on a new planet, as his scientist parents constantly move to wherever their research takes them. When he gets to school, no one seems to notice anything strange or different about him except Harris, a kid obsessed with science fiction and aliens. Harris sees Zeke doing extraordinary things but can’t convince anyone, least of all his best friend, Roxy, that Zeke might be an alien. Roxy just thinks Harris is jealous that she’s becoming friends with Zeke. But when Roxy invites Zeke over to Harris’s house, will Harris find a way to prove that he’s right?

Who Wrote The New Kid

author
A.I. Newton

A.I. Newton always wanted to travel into space, visit another planet, and meet an alien. When that plan didn’t work out, he decided to do the next best thing-write stories about aliens and space travel! The Alien Next Door series gives him a chance to imagine what it’s like to hang out with an alien. And you can do the same-unless, of course, you are lucky enough to live next door to a real-life alien!
