McCoy Prom Goers Interstellar ExcursionAt first glance, this book looks like romantic fluff meets Hitchhiker’s Guide. Reading it confirms that, but it is so well written and so engaging, it doesn’t matter.   Told from the point of view of a brainy high school nerd, the story travels from a small New Mexico town to galaxies far away and back again, as aliens kidnap one character and the other enlists the help of an alien rock band to rescue her. It’s a fun romp, but might move a bit too slow to engage readers.
