Summary: You’re out in a field looking at Saturn through your telescope when suddenly you spot a UFO. If you decide to investigate, turn to page 12. Running away? Page 16. There are 28 choices and 12 different endings in this You Choose adventure. All the endings are some form of impending doom (I ended up in the aliens’ food pen) or becoming a soldier in the human army fighting off the aliens. The last few pages look at the possibility of life in outer space; also included are a glossary, sources of additional information, a survival kit checklist, and top 10 survival tips for an alien invasion. 112 pages; ages 8-12.
Pros: Recommend this to reluctant readers. If they enjoy it, they may want to move on to the rest of the series, which includes surviving a zombie apocalypse, a virus outbreak, and a global blackout.
Cons: Each library bound edition retails for a ridiculous $31.32.
