Title: The Adventures of a Boy and his Blob
MG Scifi Adventure
Laffey Acosta wants to survive fifth grade in a new school, but he has a strange name, and bullies are targeting new kids. The vice-principal thinks he’s bad news, and his parents are too busy divorcing to help. Laffey befriends a little blue alien blob that can give him flugerspumite, that is, superpowers. AND it can make broccoli taste like marshmallow! Of course, alien blobs have goals of their own.
