Summary: While picking up milk for his children's cereal, a father is abducted by aliens and finds himself on a wild adventure through time and space.
Review: The ability for this man to craft a story astounds me! Everything he writes, I fall in love with, and this one is no exception! This one I read in a couple of hours, and it is such an adorable, whimsical story that had me sucked in from the very beginning, and the illustrations are just pure delight added to an already fantastic story.
A father has to head to the corner store to obtain milk for his children's cereal so they actually have something for breakfast (and he has milk for his tea). However, it isn't just a simple trip to the corner store for milk as the father is then abducted by aliens!
This book features aliens, dinosaurs, time travel, strange jungle people, a volcano god, wumpires, and two children who ultimately can choose to believe or not believe their father's fanciful tale of what happened and why his trip to the store took longer than it should have....more

It took me a bit to get into it, but ultimately I did end up finishing it in about a day and a half or so (minus a few hours of probably much needed sleep). I much prefer some of the nuisances of the television show, and definitely prefer the characters as they are portrayed on the television show better than they are portrayed in print - which is ABSOLUTELY something that is unheard of coming from me. ...more

It is dark, but not dark enough to be super creepy. The story is one that proves the reason that I fell in love with Gaiman's particular type of fantasy to begin with. This one -definitely- falls among my favorite books of this year, and probably of all time....more

Summary: Senior year isn't supposed to suck, but the normal stresses of Senior year, for a girl who suffers mental and emotional issues the normal stresses are compounded and feel like torture. This is Georgia's life. Orphaned and tortured, she finally has found some peace and is thrown into a love triangle between a cowboy and the popular quarterback. Will Georgia be able to choose who she wishes to persue a relationship with or will she crumble under the pressure as prom and graduation lurk just around the corner.
Review: I was given an ARC of this book by the Author in exchange for an honest review.
OH MY GOODNESS! I devoured this book in a matter of hours truth be told. I don't think I actually slept and just read it straight through in one sitting. It was that good. I was instantly sucked into the story spun by Kristin Flynn, and am desperately waiting for the next book in this series, which will no doubt have me just as sucked into Georgia's story.
The characters are absolutely fantastic, and even if I were a normal girl, trying to decide between the two guys vying for Georgia's attention would be a difficult decision! The characters are so well written and make me want to have them in my life. Seriously.
I do not have any complaints about this book at all, and I would greatly recommend this story to anyone who loves strongly created characters. We've all known someone like the mean girls in this story, the hot male best friend, the hot quarterback, and even the reformed mean girl.
Okay, I lied, I have one complaint...THAT CLIFF HANGER ENDING!! I want more damn it, seriously give me more. Next book please! I advise you to also check out the playlist that goes with this book, it's a really good one and definitely fits the story crafted by Kristin Flynn.
