Seventeen-year-old Emily and her best friend Reese can't wait for summer vacation on Cape Cod. Every year, it's the same thing: high hopes that they may finally hook up with some cool guys...and it never happens. But this year, they're sure it's going to be different. So it's totally amazing when out of nowhere they meet two unbelievably adorable boys who are just too cute to be true! Which, they soon discover, may be the case. A lot of odd things happen when Steve and Dave are around. Reese figures it's because they're not from around here. So where are they from, France? Well, not quite... Summoned from the depths of the sea by the dire threat of global pollution, friendly aliens "Steve and Dave" have manifested themselves in human form and come ashore in a last desperate effort to save the oceans.

Review quote

"When two sixth graders magically change bodies after bumping their heads together, the results are traumatic for them but hilarious for readers."--Starred Review, "Publishers Weekly" on "Gender Blender"
"In this year's best offering on the rock band life, Nelson gives an entertaining and realistic insider's view....Readers will likely lap up this look at what it's like for a band trying to make it."--Starred Review, "Publishers Weekly" on "Rock Star Superstar" "An especially mature and incisive look inside the heart of a teenager who believes that he might already have seen the best that life and love have to offer."--Starred Review, "Publishers Weekly" on "The New Rules of High School"
