Review: Interstellar Pig (Interstellar Pig #1)

User Review  - Bonnie Brien - Goodreads

Super fun read about a boy who gets caught up in a game with some mysterious neighbors (aliens). One of those books I missed as a kid, and I'm glad I found it. It is a quick read, good for probably 10 and up. Read full review
