Something cool happening in Ferrous City? Not a chance.
Until one day . . . when self-proclaimed genius inventor Ethan Fairmont runs into an abandoned car factory to avoid a local bully and accidentally stumbles across his ex-best friend Kareem, new kid Juan Carlos, and an extraterrestrial visitor. Cheese (the alien) is stuck on Earth in need of some serious repairs, spicy snacks—and absolute, total secrecy. That’s easier said than done when mysterious agents descend on Ferrous City to search for Cheese. With time running out and their family and friends in potential danger, can Ethan, Kareem, and Juan Carlos pull off an intergalactic rescue before they’re all found out?
E.T. meets Stranger Things in the kickoff to Nick Brooks’s middle-grade series that weaves contemporary issues of racial profiling, industrial community struggles, and everyday life in a fast-paced out-of-this-world adventure.


“An inventive story with a lot of heart.” — Kirkus Reviews

Poor Ethan – nothing interesting ever happens to him – and then BAM! An alien and his spaceship lands in his workspace. Ooops, I got ahead of myself. While Ethan should be helping his neighbor and making friends, he’s checking dump sites for electronic components to feed his gadgets hobby. This story is adventurous, silly, and delivers important messages. It’s a good one. – Kim Wilch, One More Exclamation
