Henry Melton,
Roswell or Bust!
(Wire Rim, 2008)

Henry Melton writes books for teenagers. Roswell or Bust! is about two teenage kids, Joe and mute Judith, who plunge into a fast-paced adventure to save 11 aliens.

It reads like a road movie, since the kids are mainly on the move, going from place to place and encountering risky situations along the way.

The plot is tight enough to keep the reader's interest intact 'til the characters solve their problem. A strange talkie, a mysterious courier and a couple of spies are all involved in this exciting story that will entertain teenaged readers. The story is highly original, witty and educational as well.

This is the second book I have read by Melton, and I would gladly read more by this author. It caters to the whole family.
