    This is an amazing book about Hilo and his two friends since he crashes on Earth. D.J, one character, finds Hilo in a hole and takes him to his place. At first he is curious about the boy. Hilo, the boy who crashed to Earth, does not remember anything. In the evening he takes him over to his B.F.F's place (Gina). They start to learn things about him, when he fixes her telescope in a few seconds. He is supernatural. Then, some monsters come from one world and wreaks havoc on the town. Will Hilo, a boy who has slightest of an idea where he is, be able to save his friends, Gina and D.J.?

                  I like this book. It has suspense, comedy, and really weird robots. It ends with a HUGE cliffhanger, so now I want to read book 2. The book is pretty short, so you could read it in a day. I recommend this book.
