Imagine being forced to move to a new planet where YOU are the alien! From the creator of the Tapper Twins, New York Times bestselling author Geoff Rodkey delivers a topical, sci-fi middle-grade novel that proves friendship and laughter can transcend even a galaxy of differences. The first time I heard about Planet Choom, we'd been on Mars for almost a year. But life on the Mars station was grim, and since Earth was no longer an option (we may have blown it up), it was time to find a new home. That's how we ended up on Choom with the Zhuri. They're very smart. They also look like giant mosquitos. But that's not why it's so hard to live here. There's a lot that the Zhuri don't like: singing (just ask my sister, Ila), comedy (one joke got me sent to the principal's office), or any kind of emotion. The biggest problem, though? The Zhuri don't like us. And if humankind is going to survive, it's up to my family to change their minds. No pressure.… (més)

A funny and sweet immigration story that doesn't beat you over the head with the message. ( )

With the pandemic, our school library is closing for the 2020–21 academic year. It makes me sad on SO many levels, especially because we know how to safely get books into the hands of our readers — but we, as library media specialists, have no say in what's happening. We have resources to offer. We have ideas. We have plans. But we are not consulted. Part of my library is being turned into (gulp!) the teachers' dining room. The other half will become a classroom. Books are being packed into boxes. Books I carefully selected and displayed and book-talked will be hidden away.

Before the *blank* hit the fan, I ordered the 2021 Connecticut Nutmeg nominee books and We're Not from Here is one of those. If there is funding (IF), I may be able to get it as an eBook, but there is nothing like holding a printed book in your hands, turning the pages . . . even the smell of a printed book makes me happy.

My fourth and fifth grade students would LOVE this book, but they may never read it. For some, it would have been an introduction to the sci-fi genre. For others, it would have been an eye-opening discussion about violence and the potential destruction of our planet. Topics ranging from discrimination to the arts to the value of humor and the importance of kindness could have been explored. Instead, I and my colleagues will most likely be assigned roles outside our area of expertise this coming year.

What could be more important than raising a reader? I don't understand what's not to understand. The pandemic should not have changed that. ( )

An MG sci-fi that was not at all what I expected. ( )

Set in what appears to be hundreds of years in the future, Lan and his family are among hundreds of human survivors of some calamity that befell Earth. They have all been living in a space station on Mars but their rations are running low. They need to find a new planet to live and options are few. They receive an invitation from the planet Choom to live there but after a 20-year journey in biosuspension, arrive to find the offer rescinded. Believing all humans to be violent and dangerous, the government will allow only Lan’s family to live on the planet on a trial basis. If it doesn’t work out, all the humans are out of luck. While trying to put forth their best selves, the family must also deal with challenges of cultural misunderstandings, a very different lifestyle, and living among beings that look like giant mosquitoes. Would appeal to kids who like adventure, reluctant readers looking for something different to appeal to them. Overall, entertaining science fiction. ( )

A spaceship carrying the surviving members of the human race (the others were lost in a world war, presumably nuclear) arrives at a livable planet. Twenty years ago, when their journey began, the aliens on the planet promised to take them in. But now they've changed their minds - they say humans are too violent. Finally they allow one test family down to the planet - so the main character has to go to school with aliens and try to win over hearts and minds. As an adult reader, I appreciated the science-fiction approach to immigration, civil rights, politics, and cultural differences. Young readers will probably like the pratfalls, the humor, and the exciting final battle.
