"I'm sorry for your loss," is an example of how polite these homicidal aliens are throughout this science fiction book.  Murderous aliens aggressively invade Earth, killing everything in sight.  Jesse, a 17 year old boy, has an alien assasin tenaciously tracking him down.  He gets stuck living in a camp to stay protected.  Many hidden camps have formed to help keep the human race living.  Everyone thinks a higher being is guiding Jesse.  With the weight of the human race on his shoulders, will Jesse be able to defend Earth from extraterrestrial invaders?

Opinion: 

In my opinion, this was a good book for kids ages 11-15.  It was a little difficult to get into, but once you do, you can't put it down.  I liked how it was semi-humorous, and it had a strong ending.  I dislike books that leave the reader hanging.  Keep in mind that there is some adult language used as well as a tremendous amount of deaths.  This book was okay, but definitely not one of my favorites.  I would read the first book, Alien Invasion and Other Inconveniences before reading this one.
