Peter gets the incredible chance to go to outer space with his teacher, who turned out to be an alien in disguise. He is prepared to learn a lot and be awed, but what he finds out is that Aliens don’t really care for earth much. They don’t like our wars, how we treat our planet, and how we treat each other. There are a number of options on the table, but the worst one is the plan to destroy earth. Peter isn’t sure how to help earth! Then he learns he has an ability he never dreamed of.
Though of just the right age to have read the original printing of this book, I never did, but what a miss! I loved this book! It’s not the first book in the series, but it was easy to follow. Its smart without being overly technical. It brings up some really good points about mankind. It is interesting and fun! The new covers are top notch! I think it would be a wonderful addition to your Sci-Fi collection!
