#42: Aoléon The #MartianGirl (Part 1) by Brent LeVasseur

Crop circles magically appear in Farmer Johnson’s field. A mysterious light sweeps over the night sky and awakens Farmer Johnson and Gilbert, the boy next door. 

Curious, Gilbert ventures out to discover the source of the light and stumbles into a beautiful Martian girl sitting in a crop circle. Farmer Johnson also investigates the strange light, and thinking that Gilbert and Aoléon are vandals, he chases them. But they sprint to Aoléon’s saucer and escape only to be pursued by the U.S. Air Force. 

Gilbert has never been attacked by swarms of giant killer robots. Never met strange aliens from other worlds. Never skyboarded across a megalopolis hidden deep inside an extinct volcano. Never trekked across a vast Martian desert. And never been eaten alive by a gigantic slor (well, almost never, unless you count Billy the fat bully at school). 

And luckily, he has never ever confronted an evil ruler of Mars bent on conquering the Earth to steal its cows. 

Never...until now! 

This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for. 

If only he can survive.

REVIEW:
I want a moog!
What a delightful story! This coming from someone who isn't into sci-fi much... but this story is great! It has digitally animated photos to accompany this galactic adventure. They bring the story to life, when you see the scene played out.
Aoléon is a groovy martian. I love the dynamic between her and Gilbert. She is very mischievous but a lot of fun too.
That's the kind of stuff the kids love and keep glued to. The parents will like the book too, but they are more happy with the assurance their children are reading age-appropriate adventures. These will excite and not frighten.
I actually look forward to the second part. What will happen now Gilbert has left Earth?

#ArmchairBEA Introductions

ArmchairBEA

I'm back for my third fourth year in a row for ArmchairBEA! I love it! It's a great way to stay involved in all the what's what of BEA, without the travel, though BEA is on my bucketlist. So let's get into who I am, for anyone who hasn't been here before.

I'm Freda, and this site is my voice. I am Canadian, coming from Ontario. I created this site in August of 2009! Yup, long time ago... and it has come pretty far since then.
Technically, I am a lifestyle blogger who is a bookworm. Initially, I was just a bookie, but my site merged into more. Books are always going to be my #1 love though, and what I post most about. I couldn't imagine life without them.
I love books, obvi, and I even write my own poetry. Yeah, yeah, I'm sensitive that way. I also love fashion, beauty, (they kinda go hand-in-hand), movies, music, photography, (which I also have my blog; Day One Photography... just a hobby photographer - no biggie), animals - especially my fubabies, Bella and Princess Ewok, and family. I'm sure there's tons more I can say I love but we'd be here all night.... and no one wants that.

My theme song



I could have picked a million songs to fit the bill... this is just one I keep playing lately.

Everyone MUST read
My review
This is one of those classics that literally everyone on the planet has to read. It is probably the best book I have ever read. It's also a story that flows through any generation. I highly recommend you read it, if that rock has you buried and you haven't already. 

If stranded on a desert island, I'd have to have Chevy Stevens there. She is my favorite Canadian author. She's talented enough that she could tell me stories everyday. Plus she is pretty. No one wants to be alone on an island with an ogre. Right?!
A photo posted by Freda Mans (@fredasphotos) on
Okay, so you probably figured out by now that I'm a bit of a nut. That's good though. No one likes plain, and plain is one thing I will never be. I'm more like neon tie dye in abstract. :-)

Happy ABEA and BEA to the lucky ducks in NYC!

REVIEW:
Okay then.
What a weird place to stop. They could of at least finished dumping the soup.
If not for the ending, I would say I loved the story. It still needed to go somewhere though. Thankfully, it's a series, so I'm sure it will come together. For most of it though, I was completely immersed in the drama surrounding Simon, at the academy. It was fun to read about, I guess I just wished for more.
Can't wait to read more about these characters!
