Stuck on Earth
Ketchvar III isn't really having the best week. He's been sent to inhabit a human body of median age (fourteen) and good physical health and conduct research to determine whether the human species deserves to exist. Unfortunately, Ketchvar is subjected to all manner of indignities in just the first 12 hours - from parental yelling and menial chores, to neighborhood bullies. It should also be noted that Tom Filber, whose body Ketchvar inhabits, is not having the best week, either - it's just that it's typical for him.
This is a fun read with clever, humorous details. Tom's middle school drama and the pain of his family relationships (avoidance is his key strategy) are familiar, but the formality of the language in Ketchvar's observational reports makes it more enjoyable.
