Oas is sent from her home planet of Zorca-twenty-three to rescue her brother Ralb from the worst humanoid known in the solar system--a teenage girl. With her traveling companions, Rotsen, a plant with an attitude who watches too many Sopranos reruns, and Lehcarr, a Venus Fly Trap with the habit of eating her friends, they set out to find Ralb.
Traveling through a black hole, Oas is transformed from her ananoid shape into a teenage humanoid, becoming what she fears most--a teenager. They land in Bedrocktown to find the teenagers aren't as bad as they feared--they're worse. Zen her handler has warned her to stay away from pizza and popcorn but she tries both, with horrible results. She needs to find her brother, figure out how humans kiss, save the town from an e.coli outbreak, and meet Johnny Depp, not necessarily in that order. Now all she has to do is find her way home, but are her ties to Earth too strong?

First, on Friday of this week Deidre's Secret by Terry Lee Wilde will be available in print (look for it in the Climbing Rose store) and next Wednesday (April 22) Jane Greenhill's newest book I Was a Teenage Alien comes out.
Later this week, I'll be chatting with Jane about her book and her life as a writer. Then next week she'll be featured as our terrific guest blogger. In the meantime, here's a look at the fabulous I Was a Teenage Alien:
