Although I would have like to have seen it written on paper, there was a hint of a possoble romance between Smitty and Ginny. I guess I'm just a sucker for those kinds of things. It would be lovely if Ms. Randall made a sequel.
I never get tired of reading this book and I recommend it to anyone, not just the 8-12th graders that it is supposed to be for. I know that I will be reading this long after I graudate from college.
The Only Alien One The Planet is a really good book. It's about a boy, namd Smitty, who doens't talk to anyone, and it's about a girl named Ginny. Smitty has alot of problems and won't describ it to anyone, and Ginny wants to know why he won't talk to anyone, and why he has been like this for years. Caulder, their friend and neighbor, know's some reasons why, but he refuseses to tell Ginny until Smitty is ready. Ginny and Caulder try to help Smitty by talking him to the movies, taking him to ice cream shops, and trying to make him speak. But all is lost because in his world, there's nothing. Until Caulder finds a note in his trash. It's a poem, one that has alot of emotion and feeling on it. Then there is hope. They take him to Haley's party, (Haley is Ginny's best friend and Caulder's girlfriend). Sometime in the party Smitty disaperes, and Ginny goes out to find him. Opps...... I already told you to much, so I'm not going to say anything else. Was this review helpful?

Don't let the title cause confusion - this book is not about sci-fi 'aliens' from space. Its about real teens and their friendships and personal struggles. Read morePublished 1 month ago by O'neal
I read this book when it was first published and again today, I enjoyed it equally both times. The premise is intriguing. Seemingly simple concepts and emotions are re-evaluated. Read morePublished 10 months ago by agk

I had to read this for summer reading for my school and its a good book for teenagers, but at times I got bored in the book and so I rated the book a 4 star book. :)Published on August 24, 2013 by Viola Dagher
