"Using a complicated system of light and mirrors, Arcturus Betelgeuse Chambers (better known as Arty) and his friends search the night sky in hopes of communicating with life on Mars. But Arty knows he'll have to give up both his search and his friends when his family moves from Missouri to Las Vegas, Nevada -- a move which Arty is even more reluctant to make after learning that the weird old guy next door is actually Cash Maddux, an ex-astronaut who shares Arty's extraterrestrial obsession. Combining gross humour with cosmic factoids and honest emotions, Life on Mars is a funny and (mostly) realistic read." Kids' Books October 2014 newsletter
