What fun I had reading this book! (And who could possibly dislike a story with two characters named Appleby and Pilbeam?)

I remembered this book once I read the dust jacket. It was a cute story, and I did enjoy it when I was younger.

Summary: The story of a young girl named Nesta who has always been a little skeptical of her parents' behaviors. Come to find out, her parents aren't really from Boston, but they are aliens from outer space. One day, their friend Thomas from the planet Ormingant comes to Earth and notify Nesta's parents it is their last chance to return to space if they so choose and Nesta has a difficult time because she wants to stay on Earth.

Personal reflection: I thought this book was fun to read because you are constantly guessing if Nesta's parents are going to stay on Earth or go to space.

Class use: read aloud and ask the students what they would do if they were in Nesta's shoes. Stay on earth or go to outer space? Also, create a character map for Nesta and her human qualities and alien qualities. How do they combine to create Nesta's personality?

The final volume, how sad! How one hopes they will actually become human, "alive" in that sense? But you will have to read it to find out.
