Besides having one of the best titles ever, this is a fun, short read for summer. 14 year old David falls hard for one of his father's therapy patients. Zelda is young, hot, and believes that she is an alien sent to Earth to find her "chosen one," who happens to be Johnny Depp. It's really more light romance and humor than sci-fi, and captures, strangely, that awkward phase when teen boys are still boys to most women despite wanting so badly to be seen as men. David is a really lovely character, possessive and protective of Zelda despite the fact that he feels like a kid around her and adores her at the same time. He loves his dysfunctional parents and step-sister despite themselves, and brillantly walks that line between nostalgia for his younger, more innocent days, and yearning to be considered more grown-up. This one should have broad appeal.
