About the Author

Chelsea Sedoti fell in love with writing at a young age after discovering that making up stories was more fun than doing her schoolwork. (Her teachers didn't always appreciate this.) She now focuses that passion by writing about flawed teenagers who are also afraid of growing up, like in her novels, The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett and As You Wish. She lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she avoids casinos but loves roaming the Mojave Desert. Visit her at

"Well written...Believable characters facing realistic teenage issues coupled with a thematic exploration of wishes, fears, and principles of honesty and ethics will help to keep readers' attention." -- School Library Connection
"A balanced exploration of maturity, vulnerability, human connection, and our innate desire to believe. " -- Kirkus Reviews
"Sedoti will draw readers in with the outrageous situation and the town's amusing aspects, such as a 63-foot lava lamp, but she truly excels with Gideon--a unique character whose desire for recognition and achievement is universal." -- Publishers Weekly
"[A] quirky, intelligent novel ... Big questions of morality, cosmic insignificance, and human connection ground this novel even as it ponders the stars." -- Booklist
"At 500 pages, this story certainly delivers an interesting tale of two boys trying to keep themselves out of trouble with a lie, but manage to have an experience of a lifetime. I encourage you to pick this story up if you're into tales of hoaxes, extraterrestrials, and family." -- The Nerd Daily
"Funny and lighthearted...Fans of Pete Hautman's dark humor, E. Lockhart's playful formats (letters and emails and transcripts, for example), Libba Bray's grasp of the outrageous, and John Green's sense of place will enjoy Sedoti's newest offering." -- School Library Journal
"A page-turner as engrossing as any classic Twilight Zone starring two spirited brothers who run circles around the Hardy Boys." -- Ben Philippe, Morris Award-winning author of The Field Guide to the North American Teenager
