    1 thought on “The Fellowship for Alien Detection”

    1. Haley is the kind of eighth grader who's already trying to pad her future college applications. She applied for the Fellowship for Alien Detection on a whim, as an alternative to her usual music camps and other enriching activities. Dodger is a shy loner who already feels like a failure at age thirteen. His parents are surprised when he's awarded the Fellowship for Alien Detection, since he's not exactly scholarship material. Both kids have stumbled upon some strange occurrences. Missing time. M [...]

    2. Turned out to be a really neat sci-fi story, more for pre-teens and teens, but a good story none the less. I enjoyed how the author keeps you in suspense and throws you for a loop.

    3. Okay, what a ride. This book was simultaneously exactly what I expected it to be, and in a way not at all close. Because what I thought I was going to read was an adolescent, X-Files-esque road trip to discover the reality of extraterrestrial existence, and what I got was (view spoiler)[a mad-dash effort to liberate a town from alien control. (hide spoiler)] Kind of. In a way, that's almost what the kids experienced too, and maybe that's the goal. There were a few picky things I didn't like--a t [...]

    4. I love this book, it has everything I love in a book. I love science ficton and fantasy, I also like realistic ficton but it is far from being my favorite genre. I know I just read it but this is a book I would want to read again.

    5. Summary:At first, we start with two distinct characters. Hayley, is a very smart thirteen year old girl from Connecticut. She applies for the very first Fellowship for Alien Detection Scholarship given by the Gavin Keller Foundation and she gets it. This begins her journey to Arizona where she investigates these odd time lapses. An entire town loses 16 minutes. The town is disoriented, and someone is missing. In Hayley's attempt to build up her newspaper reporter resume, she begins an investigat [...]

    6. Haley is a highly motivated student who applied for an odd summer program because she stumbled upon a mystery perfect for a budding journalist. Dodger applied to the same program, hoping to discover the truth behind a phenomenon that makes him even more awkward than he might be otherwise. Thus, the two set out to find aliens on their summer vacations.And Suza Raines, featured in interludes throughout the novel, keeps living the same day over and over.I enjoyed THE FELLOWSHIP FOR ALIEN DETECTION [...]

    7. I struggled between a 4.5 and a 5 for this, because I don't think it was a perfect read, but I think it deserved the 5 mainly for being so ballsy. 1) It's scary as shit, dude. The cover does not prepare you for how legit scary it is. 2) It does a lot of really sophisticated Hitchcockian things with the aliens and does not shy away from being sophisticated, either in plot or language.3) I felt like the kids had been genderswapped, in the best possible way4) The alien plot does not get overly tied [...]

    8. (read an uncorrected proof)Good Science-fiction story about two kids who discover aliens and a town that has been in a loop, repeating a single day for the last 20 years.There is a mystery to solve, people to save, aliens to beat, a town to save.

    9. I just received the ARC! It looks awesome! Thanks to voor hosting the giveaway and Walden Pond Press for providing the ARC of course! Really excited for this one, will begin reading this after my current reads :D.

    10. The story: from completely different areas of the country, three 8th-graders stumble onto the biggest story of the century (or maybe ever): aliens getting ready to invade, already running experiments on earthlings to decide whether to wipe them out entirely, or just allow them to survive as a sub-species. Don't let the cartoon-like front cover fool you: life on earth is about to come to an end if Suza, Dodger, and Haley can't solve the puzzle in time.June Cleaver’s ratings: Language PG-13; Nud [...]

    11. If you like alien abduction stories and loads of suspense this is the perfect book for you. It has tons of alien encounters which always keep you at the edge of your seat. The characters are a perfect match for this book. There are lots of arguments and unsettled affairs that lead to great scenes. Every single abduction has a great mystery that follows it.

    12. I am not a big sci-fi fan and I loved this book! The two main characters start out completely removed from each other and then move towards their inevitable meeting. Good suspense, action, and mystery made this book hard to put down. I like the fact that the two characters come from completely different backgrounds. A very entertaining title for middle grade readers.

    13. I really wanted to LOVE this book because I love aliens! BUT I just liked it. It was very interesting and exciting, but there wasn't anything WOW about it. I definitely enjoyed it though.

    14. This is cute.A young girl and young boy earn scholarships and must do research for the group. They both discover that aliens are very real and have their own agendas.

    15. not my type of book. little green men dont interest me, they give me nightmares. it was entertaining though. my daughter will be happy that I read it lol

    16. The Fellowship for Alien Detection is an amazing book on mind-controlling aliens. I loved this book because it provided an idea of what aliens are and can do.

    17. 3.5 starsI found The Fellowship for Alien Detection to be an enjoyable read! In all of my reading through the years I can't remember one of them being about aliens. (Surely, I'm forgetting at least one, though). For that reason, this one was a refreshing change of pace for me. It had the "weird" quality going on for it, as you would expect in a book about aliens.Haley is disappointed that she won't be attending Thorny Mountain Music Camp or The Daily Times Junior Correspondent Fellowship during [...]

    18. The Fellowship for Alien Detection is a suspenseful, fast-paced, mysterious, alien adventure!The first sci-fi that I have ever read that is based in the present and highly believable. If you are not a believer, Haley and Dodger will definitely make you into one!!!The story starts with Haley trying to figure out a way to keep the majority of her fellowship a secret from her family. If they knew half the things that were going on, they would not let Haley go on with her investigation. And Haley is [...]

    19. Kevin Emerson's The Fellowship for Alien Detection is an out of this world (yeah, I went there, lol) and wildly fun read! Emerson offers readers a fantastic mix of adventure, mystery, and intergalactic excitement.Thirteen year old Haley from Connecticut and Dodger from Washington have very little in common, but they've both won a two-week, fully funded research trip from the Fellowship for Alien Detection. Haley sets out with her parents and little brother, determined to uncover the truth behind [...]

    20. The Fellowship for Alien Detection is the kind of book that reaffirms my love for middle grade. There's adventure, interesting characters, and best of all: aliens.I like that The Fellowship is told from both Haley and Dodgers point of view for many reasons. 1) Having the point of view of both a boy and a girl makes the story more well-rounded and gives a draw for both genders, 2) it adds more to the mystery since you start out with Haley's side of the story then get Dodger's so the two sides of [...]

    21. Haley wants to be a newspaper reporter and is extremely interested in alien life forms, so when she gets a summer fellowship from the Gavin Kellar foundation, she's thrilled. She gets to investigate at her discretion, and her family gets a free cross country car trip as well! Haley is starting with the story of Suza Raines, who was reported missing after many towns in her area had problems with unnatural phenomena. Haley wants to check out this area and talk with Suza's sister. The other winner [...]

    22. Something weird is going on… People all over the country are having dreams that aliens are coming down to Earth. In fact, it gets weirder. Some people, and the entire town of Juliette, Arizona are missing. Kid investigator, Haley, gets a “Fellowship for Alien Detection” from a super secret organization that wants to prove that aliens exist. Haley and her family go around the country to try to research “Missing Time” reports in the US and France. Another kid investigator and Fellowship [...]

    23. It occurred to him now that maybe this was what an explorer's life was actually like: lonely, full of tough choices, danger, and now and then a talk with a fellow adventurer by moonlight, in some desolate place.-----"That may be, but stopping them is a good deal more dangerous to us," said the Alto.Haley didn't like that thought, and yet she snapped right back at him. "Is that a reason not to do it?"And now the Alto smiled. "Of course not. Danger is always preferable."Until it's too dangerous, H [...]

    24. The Story-We have three main characters. The first is Suza, a teenager trapped in a time bubble, desperate to escape. Then there is Haley, a super smart girl who connects the missing of Suza to a possible alien threat. Last we have Dodger, a boy who think that the whole town of Juliette is missing because he can hear their radio broadcasts in his head.Haley and Dodger both win the Fellowship for Alien Detection award and are given a scholarship to investigate their theories. They start out in di [...]

    25. Kevin Emerson’s The Fellowship for Alien Detection is a fun-filled adventure about two kids on a quest to prove that aliens exist and save the world from an imminent alien attack.

    26. Imagine you were a student looking for a program to fill the summer before you started high school, something that would look impressive when it came time to complete your college applications, but would also be fun and fulfilling. What if you discovered a summer fellowship that offered you the opportunity to explore a personal theory about the possibility that extra-terrestrials were visiting Earth. This is exactly the premise of this surprisingly entertaining book, which details the adventures [...]

    27. Haley and Dodger, living 3,000 miles apart, have their lives changed forever when the Keller Foundation awards them both $25,000 and a two-week trip to investigate their theories of alien presence on Earth. Haley's is based on towns with missing-time--and sometimes missing people--incidents. Dodger's is based on radio broadcasts from a town that doesn't seem to exist. As each embarks with his or her family on a road trip to investigate, they each find themselves getting in deeper and deeper--and [...]

    28. Out of this world!Mind control, time loops, missing memories, and intergalactic travel - what more could a 13 year old want from a summer vacation? This was a super fun book! My kids have not been exposed to too much science fiction, because most of the books they find are intimidating to them. A book that switches between times and places can be confusing for some readers, but FAD manages to make the time loop chapters very clear, and readers will understand them more and more as they continue [...]
