Stuck on Earth by Klass
Tom Filber or Ketchvar III? Ketchvar believes he was sent to Earth to determine if a race of people who were mean to each other and the place they lived on was worth saving. He was bullied by his family and by people in the neighborhood but the help of the school counselor, a neighbor he noticed but didn't know, and an old teacher, he learns more about who he is and what he's supposed to do.
Although Stuck on Earth has a great many funny parts, it's not a funny book. The issues of bullying and environmental damage are real and happen much the way Klass has pointed out in his book. The ending wrapped up a little neatly but it was necessary after the emotional trauma Tom and Ketchvar suffer throughout the book.
I give this one 3 copies. It's good but I will have to find the right audience. Pair this one with Operation Redwood and Klass' other book, Firestorm.
