Synopsis: In the heart-warming style of Barbara Park and Bruce Coville, former children's librarian and well-reviewed author Francess Lantz brings to life a funny and accessible story filled with compassionate insights about growing up. Meet two girls who are galaxies apart--Megan, an insecure young girl and Ariel, a beautiful, brainy, and perfect girl from the planet Zircalon-6. The girls don't like each other very much and to complicate matters, Ariel's alien father has fallen in love with Megan's earth mother. But the girls do have one thing in common--break up their parent's courtship. Follow the two girls as they get to know and understand each other and realize that they both really do care about their parents happiness.  

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-8?The last thing down-to-earth Megan wants is her mother marrying Cos and having his perfectly brilliant, beautiful daughter Ariel as a stepsister. Ariel is no happier about the union. The two teenagers do agree on one thing: if they work together, they may be able to keep their parents apart. As the girls scheme, their efforts seem to work; however, they actually find themselves becoming friends. Ultimately the couple marry and the group becomes a happy family. This is the basic plot, thickened by the fact that Ariel and her father are not letting on that they are helium-breathing aliens from Zircalon-6 adapting to life on Earth. Their cover ups, misunderstandings, and misinterpretations of life on Earth create the zany humor prevalent throughout the story. In the form of diary entries, Ariel reveals details of her extraterrestrial life and her opinion of what she views as primitive earthly existence. The wit, character development, and good fun work together to produce a title suitable for reluctant readers?or anyone who wants a fast-paced read. Add this one to paperback collections.?Cheryl Cufari, Glencliff Elementary School, Niskayuna, NY
