Publisher Description

What happens when a mind-reading alien goes to middle school?

Charlie Baker is the new kid at school. He looks like any other kid, but he’s far from it, and somehow he has to fit in and not reveal his secret.

He thought it would be easy, but on the first day, he already messed up big time. Now, a girl, Maya, knows he’s from outer space, and the school bully, Caden, is out to get him. 

But Charlie has to make this middle school on earth thing work, so he’s willing to do whatever it takes–even if it means getting Caden flowers or wearing toilet clothes!

Alien kid is also enjoyable for parents!

I read this book aloud to my son every night. I enjoyed reading it, and always wanted to see what was going to happen next. There were a few spots where I thought a different twist could fit better, but it really was enjoyable overall. I liked that it was clean, where I didn’t have to worry about words or situations that may not be appropriate for my son and his age. Fun book and excited for the next one!

Alien Kid by Kristen Otte

Alien Kid was really enjoyable. My granddaughter and I read it together. She really liked that Charlie and his family could read minds. Besides it being a great read, it showed how people should treat each other. We are both looking forward to reading Alien Kid 2 together.
