I read this book when I was in high school. It was a very quick, fun read. I wanted to read it again, and I found it on here. It was a very light, very quick fun read. Five stars. Punks, aliens, shoppers, etc. It killed.

Pretty light reading, but entertaining none the less. I would give this a mild recommendation.

The fate of the future is in their hands...

Seeth--a bored punk rocker looking for excitement. Miranda--an air-head beauty who lives to shop. And Kerwin--a nerd who just wants to fit in. They're not friends, and they don't even like each other. But now they are the key to saving the universe--and are on the adventure of a lifetime.

A fun romp , September 4, 2005
Reviewer: Kurt A. Johnson (Marseilles, Illinois, USA)

When punk rocker Seeth rescues someone from arrest at the local bowling alley, it all seems like a harmless lark. But, when the cops turn out to be murderous aliens, Seeth and the bookworm Kerwin soon find themselves running for their lives. Accidentally picking up airhead style-queen Miranda, they set off for the stars on the adventure of a lifetime!

This is quite a fun little book. Shift your brain into neutral and suspend your disbelief as you will quickly find a universe filled with extremely odd creatures doing extremely odd things, while the situation becomes odder and odder. I mean, this is not Isaac Asimov teaching a lesson, instead this book is a fun romp through all sorts of strange adventures. By the way, did you realize that the most important thing in the universe is shopping? Well, get this book and learn more!

A zany out-of-this-galaxy comic romp.
