David, otherwise known as Scrub (don’t ask), isn’t happy about leaving Florida and his friends to summer with his grandmother in "Middle of Nowhere," Washington. When he arrives at her Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast, he isn’t surprised by its 60s meets Star Wars decor, but he is surprised by the weird-looking guests. It turns out that each room in the inn is a portal, and his grandma is the gate-keeper, allowing aliens to vacation on Earth. Grandma desperately needs Scrub’s help with welcoming (and disguising) the tourists, shopping for cartloads of aluminum foil for dinner, and taking rambunctious alien kids camping in the nearby woods. The problem is, the town sheriff–already suspicious about Granny–is a scout leader camping in the same spot. Will Scrub blow Granny’s cover, forcing the B&B to shut down forever? Full of cosmic chaos and mind-bending mayhem, Scrub’s summer adventure will leave readers wanting to make a return trip.
This was a cute, enjoyable book designed for young readers. I don’t know any young boys who wouldn’t want to read this.
This book takes Scrub on a wild ride through a wacky world that Clete Barrett Smith carefully constructed.
Scrub was not looking forward to spending a whole summer away from his friends. Little did he know that his whole view of his grandma is about to change! Can you imagine your grandma running a bed & breakfast that is not only named Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast, but actually is? That is exactly what Scrub learns on his trip to Washington.
