[The Greys] Free ✓ Melissa Savage
Embers in the war and might have been a bit resilient There probably wasn t a lot f grief counseling available but Mylo certainly needed some What I really think This reminded me a little Bayou Dreams of Mark Teague s The Doom Machine 2009 which I can t get to circulate even though it s shiny I may wait to purchase thisne even though the 1947 Roswell setting is fabulous A awesome heartbreaking book about the rosswell incidentA good way to learn historyI recommend it to everyone The truth about this book is that I wanted to enjoy this book than I did It took me about halfway through the to actually start enjoying it before
That I Would Read A Page And I would read a page and loved the author s previous book Lemons and this book has some Snowbound with Her Hero of that same spirit the story takes a long time to gain momentum which is why it doesn t get the same rating as Lemons The Truth About Martians by Melissa Savage 317 pages Crown Books for Young Readers 2018 17Language G 4 swears 0 f Content G Violence GBUYING ADVISORY EL ESSENTIALAUDIENCE APPEAL AVERAGE When a flying saucer crashes into a field in Corona NM in 1947 Mylo is calledn by the surviving Martians for help He and his friends Dibs and Gracie seek and find the survivors and a whole lot Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, of trouble The Army Air Force doesn t want the public to think a flying saucer has crashed into a local field but Mylo has already felt the lossf a much loved brother and cannot bear the plea for help without trying He and his friend Dibs and crush Gracie decide to investigate Who they find is each ther adults in their town and an extraterrestrial family In the series f events that unfold heroes are made courage is awakened friendships are grown families are loved lives are awakened and worlds become closer that imaginedThis book touches Her Man From Shilo on the pain and lossf death in positi Melissa Savage writes stories about The Agents Secret Past (Military Investigations otherworldy creatures bigfoots martians and human loss In mypinion this book isn t as good as her first novel LEMONS but it is full Champagne with a Celebrity of well crafted characters and descriptions She throws in a twist every time the story begins to meander And I enjoyed allf the references to things from days gone by like Superman Secret Agent Affair (The Doctors Pulaski, on the radio black and white Flash Gordon serials and Kellogg s cereal with pep This children s story was a real mixed bag in mypinion On The Salvation of Zachary Baumkletterer one hand it did an excellent job in dealing with friendship grief neighborly concern God and faith Moreover it encouraged writing as a methodf dealing with sad feelings On the Courting Callie (Heart of the West/Bachelor Auction, other hand it had too muchf what would be considered gross boy stuff and the character Mortimer, Mallory and Allen Taster Collection of Dibs was like a caricature in the beginningf the story Those two things are minor though compared to what I thought was the main problem Mustang Wild (Wild, of the book it is encouraging children to believe in conspiracy theories Author Melissa Savage takes conspiracy ideas that have been around for decades about the Roswell New Mexico UFO incident in the 1940s which all have been debunked and makes them seem legitimate in this book At leastne person involved in the real Roswell incident is a character in this story too Now years ago I likely would have had little problem with a children s story The Little Vintage Carousel by the Sea of this nature but not today Critical thinking isbviously not being taught in many schools any longer and many adults are also A PHYSICAL AFFAIR obviously lacking in the ability to think critically I m not talking about critical thinking as defined by scientist but critical thinking that involves ceasing to believe things when there is a lotf evidence that what is being believed is not true That pertains to both things and people So many individuals in current times appear to believe that whatever they want to believe is the truth Children are learning from this too Believe whatever you want and disregard any facts that contradict your beliefs In this book the military is seen as evil and desperate to cover up the fact that aliens have landed n the Earth One high ranking soldier even threatens children getting right in their faces At least ne child is manhandled The two retired military Brief Lives officers in the story are seen as good and kind and had to leave the military because they were good and kind Children lie to protect an alien and are encouraged to do so by adults Since uite a few characters have Mexican surnames it s hard not to wonder if this story is also actually an illegal alienne incognito Decades ago such a view Texas Manhunt (Chance, Texas of the military might have been accepted without uestion by many Today however it s the military that seems to be the trying to prevent abusef power in this country It s the military that seems rational For example the mi. Else seems to hear There it is againHelp But who And why him after he couldn’t save the Condor one person who mattered than anything Something crashed in the desert northf Roswell New Mexico in 1947 The military wants everyone to believe it’s just a fallen weather balloon But Mylo Story and his best friend Dibs know the truth They know it because they were there and saw it with their wn eyesAnd the truth isit’s not from this. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I m worried it s not going get the recognition it deserves cover and title are very much get the recognition it deserves The cover and title are very much with the story but I m not sure its going to sell it The science fiction genre always comes in last place in student interest surveys and this book looks 100% science fiction Kids today run from the word martian like the plague Unless the librarian talks up this book kids will never know that it s based n a true event that Bliss County - Der Traum in Weiß occurred near Roswell New Mexico In 1947 anfficial from the Army Air Force Base announced that they had recovered a flying saucer The story appeared The Bride in Blue on the coverf every major newspaper Several days later the story was retracted and to this day has caused speculation about what the military really foundMany people including The Life Lucy Knew ones who were kids at the time claim to have seen the flying saucer up close Savage s story is a fictional accountf what might have happened The best way to describe it is It meets E T It because there is a comical group The Lone Sheriff of 5 kids who journeyut to the crash site to investigate and E T because an alien ends up following The Bridal Suite onef the boys and he becomes responsible for protecting it and helping it get homeAll that makes for a cool story but what s most incredible about this book is how well Savage describes the perspective The Troublesome Angel of kids in 1947 Superhero comics and westerns were priority 1 A Coke and Cracker Jacks
