Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on First Day on Earth by Cecil Casterllucci.
A startling, wonderful novel about the true meaning of being an alien in an equally alien world.
We are specks. Pieces of dust in this universe. Big nothings.
I know what I am.
Mal lives on the fringes of high school. Angry. Misunderstood. Yet loving the world -- or, at least, an idea of the world.
Then he meets Hooper. Who says he's from another planet. And may be going home very soon.
Intriguing! I like the juxtaposition of a kid being an outcast because he's different and someone who may be an actual alien.
First Day on Earth comes out November 1.
