- About the book: D.J. and his friend Gina are totally normal kids. But that was before a mysterious boy came crashing down from the sky! Hilo doesn’t know where he came from, or what he’s doing on Earth. (Or why going to school in only your underwear is a bad idea!)
But what if Hilo wasn’t the only thing to fall to our planet? Can the trio unlock the secrets of his past? Can Hilo survive a day at school? And are D.J. and Gina ready to save the world?

My girls are really into graphic novels right now. They love to read but for those kids that have a harder time with it this book is perfect. It's a fun, easy read and makes a great gift!
It was really good. I thought it was weird that a boy crashed to earth and didn't know anything. It was funny that the boy crashed wearing only shiny underwear and didn't want to wear clothes. This book made me laugh a lot. I can't wait to read the 2nd one!
