4.We didnt scream anymore. I smiled at the yellow-haired person and it smiled at me.
I like this passage because they both smiled right after they were screaming. I thought they are similar and alike.

5.I thought this book is talking about human goes to other planet and crash, but it was actually the story about aliens. As soon as I realized that this book talks about human from alien's view, I was

is diffrent from people. Just animal I thought.
5. First, I thought main character is human and story is from the side of human,
but it was the side of a being from outer space. I noticed that in middle when I

4.Do you want to travel in space? Why?
MY answer; Yes,I do. That's beacuse I float in zero gravity.
5.The genre of this story is SF, I think. This book is written interview style. This style is very intersting for me. Old woman who came back from the journey told interviewer of her experience, meeting alians etc. This book is "happy end"story. Please read this book.

earth, alien, ship, girl, relationship, dog and space.

Do you belive in alien?
I do not belive in alien because if there are alien in the space, human being must find out them.
If you met alien that are in trouble, would you help them?
Never, because I am shy. I do not want to have relationship with stranger. However, if they ask me to help, I would be happy to help them.

Q. Can you believe alian of existence?
A. No, I can't. I think there are no alian. Only human beings exist all over the pranet.

This story is funny constructure. There are questions and main character's answer. But it is compricated story. I can't understand a little. Arian and human on earth are good friends. It is great.
