9780062201836: Mr. Fahrenheit

Super 8 meets Friday Night Lights in this smart and action-packed coming-of-age novel from the author of The End Games, T. Michael Martin.

Benji’s lived his whole life in the same sleepy midwestern town—the same town his father grew up in, and his grandfather. But he wants nothing more than to put his past in the rearview mirror as soon as he graduates high school. Benji yearns for a Moment—the Moment that will redeem and transform his ordinary life. The Moment that will propel him into a new, star-bright future. 

Then one night, the Moment happens: Benji and his tight group of friends—CR, Ellie, and Zeeko—accidentally shoot down a flying saucer in the local quarry. At Benji’s urging, they decide to keep it a secret and solve its mysteries on their own. But as they face threats both earthly and alien, and old tensions among the friends surface, Benji begins to question whether this Moment is the miracle he’s always dreamed of—or a curse that could destroy them all.

Review:

"Martin's follow-up to his breakneck, yet surprisingly moving, horror novel, The End Games (2013), trades zombie tropes for alien ones in this invigorating piece of sci-fi nostalgia. A post-football game hangout with high-school magician Benji--aka Benji Blazes--and his three best buds goes wonky when they shoot a UFO right out of the sky and it crashes beneath lake ice. Convinced that he has found the thing to kick-start his dull life in Bedford Falls (yes, that Bedford Falls; Martin knows his Americana), Benji convinces his pals to keep secret what emerges: a smooth metal pod that begins communicating via doo-wop music. Though it sounds farcical, Martin has a knack for making ominous hay of absurdities. Not that this is entirely straight-faced--the central characters are a boisterous, joke-cracking bunch that never let things get too serious. It's a tightrope not even Martin can always toe: some paragraphs spiral out of control, and the climax is packed with coincidences and shortcuts, as if even the author is out of breath. These lapses, thankfully, are bandaged with a gauzy, Bradburian magic. This is The Day the Earth Stood Still by way of Something Wicked This Way Comes: campy but haunting, and about ray-gun-shooting monsters as much as it is about bittersweet broken dreams."- Booklist (starred review)

“This is The Day the Earth Stood Still by way of Something Wicked This Way Comes: campy but haunting, and about ray-gun-shooting monsters as much as it is about bittersweet broken dreams.” (Booklist (starred review))

“A solid option reserved exclusively for hard-core fans of classic sci-fi.” (For hardcore sci-fi fans)
