This is a fun little book, somewhere between mystery and scifi with a British twist, fairly off-center but fun. There are British-isms everywhere, but they shouldn't hold readers back as the context makes them clear enough. It is a really fast read: Boy main character and best friend get caught up trying to figure out why their teachers are speaking some strange language - and then they get transported by unbelievable means to a planet in far away, but they get home and overcome the aliens. It is not supposed to be believable - which does amazingly work. I think nerdy kids especially will love it.
