Book Description & Review

Aoleon The Martian Girl: Part 1 First Contact by Brent LeVasseur

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Crop circles magically appear in Farmer Johnson’s field. A mysterious light sweeps over the night sky and awakens Farmer Johnson and Gilbert, the boy next door.

Curious, Gilbert ventures out to discover the source of the light and stumbles into a beautiful Martian girl sitting in a crop circle. Farmer Johnson also investigates the strange light, and thinking that Gilbert and Aoléon are vandals, he chases them. But they sprint to Aoléon’s saucer and escape only to be pursued by the U.S. Air Force.

Gilbert has never been attacked by swarms of giant killer robots. Never met strange aliens from other worlds. Never skyboarded across a megalopolis hidden deep inside an extinct volcano. Never trekked across a vast Martian desert. And never been eaten alive by a gigantic slor (well, almost never, unless you count Billy the fat bully at school).

And luckily, he has never ever confronted an evil ruler of Mars bent on conquering the Earth to steal its cows.

Never…until now!

This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for.

If only he can survive.

Gilbert lives in Nebraska on a farm. We start the story with him waking up from a nightmare of aliens and boarding a UFO. He sees strange lights and gets up to investigate. He stumbles upon Aoleon, a Martian that has come to create crop circles. They get chased onto the UFO to escape farmer Johnson then get chased by the US Air Force in a top secret plane.

After escaping, Aoleon get a call from her mother to come home before dinner gets cold. So, she brings Gilbert home with her to Mars. But when they land, things are more troubling than they look. It seems that both Gilbert and Aoleon are going to have more adventures.

This is a great mid-grade story. I loved the illustrations, they gave the story more depth and I think will help keep younger readers involved. This is part 1 of a series. I really like how the story started and the little twist at the end. I am very interested in seeing how the story progresses.

This is a great story for mid-grade readers and others. Make sure to check it out.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
