Review Source: Knopf Books for Young Readers
It's Superbad meets Spaceballs in this hilarious extraterrestrial road trip!
Just a few days before prom, Bennett pulls off something he never imagined possible: his dream girl, Sophie, agrees to be his date. Moments afterward, however, he watches Sophie get abducted by aliens in the middle of the New Mexico desert.
Faced with a dateless prom (and likely kidnapping charges), Bennett does the only thing he can think of: he catches a ride into outer space with a band of extraterrestrial musicians to bring her back.
Can he navigate alien concert venues, an extraterrestrial reality show, and the band's outlandish egos to rescue his date in time for the big dance? Fans of King Dork and Winger won't want to miss this!
Bennett has a prom date he never thought possible- his dream girl, Sophie. Right after she accepts to be his date, she's abducted by aliens. Bennett then goes on an interstellar excursion to try and bring her back.
The Prom Goer's Interstellar Excursion is definitely a book you don't need to let off your radar. I am in love with this story and I am completely in love with Bennett. I picked up this book as soon as I saw it would be about aliens, but Bennett won me over. He is the most awkward and perfect character! The book is written as if the protagonist is who wrote it. But, not like a journal or diary entry, it's more like an essay, which he pokes fun at in the beginning. Speaking of fun, this book is perfectly described when it comes to "Superbad meets Spaceballs." I completely agree. It's hilarious and awkward and so fun to read!
I can't find a single flaw about The Prom Goer's Interstellar Excursion. Chris McCoy is a brilliant author! His writing style is highly enjoyable making for such a great read. Like I mentioned, you will truly have fun reading this one!
