really liked it
bookshelves: ya, boybook

Short chapters and alienated young man w/ serious home problems make this a quick and good reluctant reader book. Mal, still dealing w/ his father's abandonment and his mother's collapse into alcoholism, starts going to an alien abduction support group where he meets Hooper - a man claiming to be an alien. Was mal really abducted by aliens? Is Hooper just a slightly mentally disturbed homeless man? Will the aliens come back and take Mal away from it all?
