Reviews

"A witty and penetrating satire of American life." --The New York Times Book Review

"Humorous misunderstandings and poignant moments with his host's alcoholic father and bitter mother save this from being just another 'people have ruined the planet; let's get rid of them and start over' book . . . . Stuck on Earth will resonate with kids who feel like aliens in their own homes." --Starred, School Library Journal

"Klass's (the Caretaker Trilogy) thoughtful, often wrenching book offers plenty to think about, from what's really going on in Tom's head to questions about human responsibility to the planet and each other." --Starred, Publishers Weekly

"Ketchvar's adventure will win fans." --Kirkus Reviews

"Touching, weird, relevant, and a great piece of storytelling, STUCK ON EARTH is a uber-quirky middle school favorite in the making." --Richie Partington, Richie's Picks
