Whoops that was enormously long and I couldn't finish!! So in my 4 years, I have gotten 2nd place in the STATE 3 times!! The other time I got 2nd in district so we did not advance to state. Anyway, it's super great and a fun way to spend time with your best book nerd friends!! I'm sorry if your district does not participate, but you should talk to your school librarian about it!! Or maybe next year...Because this year it might not happen anywhere. Sadly. 💜
An alien escapes from his planet going through war, but leaving his grandma behind. He arrives in Hollywood on Earth where people assume he is just a regular human in a very realistic costume, and that his spaceship is a movie prop. He goes by his pseudonym, Buddy C. Burger, and lands a role in a TV show! Using a necklace his grandma invented, Buddy transforms into an old movie star! However, he has trouble keeping his real identity a secret. He needs alien food for his alien body, and without it, he has trouble controlling his transformations. Can Buddy keep his secret while all eyes and cameras are on him? This book was very humorous, and Buddy's witty jokes will earn a laugh from all audiences. I definitely recommend this book! I received this book through DOGO Summer Reading.
