Close Encounters! (The Secret World of Alex Mack, #18) PDF
by David Cody Weiss
This was very fun to read. It's "TV-Fiction", based on the 90s TV show "The Secret World of Alex Mack", about a girl accidentally sprayed with a mysterious chemical called GC-161 on her first day of middle school. The GC-161 gives Alex Mack powers, such as telekinesis and the ability to change into a puddle of water. This show was one of my favorites of the late 90s, and I know always wished I had Alex's special powers (minus the whole getting-sprayed-with-potentially-toxic-chemical thing). The show was only on for a short time, but it was fun and this well-written book brought back the nostalgia for me.
The characters were spot-on and the situations the characters were in or were put in felt very true to the show, but perhaps on a larger scale. I really liked that there was no "dumbed-down" or any too trendy language, which seems to be too often the protocol for "kids books". The prose was descriptive and realistic, the characters human and the danger and action perfectly executed. 3.5 stars.
