“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Release Date: May 12, 2011
Jacob Wonderbar is used to detentions, but when a spaceship crashes near his house, he finds himself in a whole new level of trouble. After swapping a corn dog for the ship, he and his two best friends, Sarah Daisy and Dexter, take off on a madcap adventure. They accidentally cause an epic explosion, get kidnapped by a space pirate, and are marooned on planets like Numonia and Paisley, where the air smells like burp breath and revenge-hungry substitute teachers rule. And that’s only the beginning . . . It turns out that there’s an entire colony of space humans, and Jacob’s long-lost father just might be one of them.
The first book in debut author Nathan Bransford’s hilarious space adventure series has dynamite friendships, peculiar planets, and nonstop action. You’ll never look at the stars the same way!
Reasons I am making Wanty hands!!!!:
Nathan Bransford used to be an agent, once upon a time. And keeps this amazing blog, if you follow the link up top with his name. And still does. So when I heard he had a MG novel coming out it went on the wanty pile of Goodreads. Now normally I don’t read a lot of MG, but I have an idea for an MG novel, so girls gotta start somewhere. I think that MG with a certain level of ridiculousness to it, can truly work. And I want a taste of the ridiculous!
