Black Knight by Matt Grandis gives new meaning to the phrase ‘little green men’. The banter between Juno and MJ makes for a light summer read. Juno’s spunky attitude conceals abandonment issues, and years of suppressed anger resurface as reality collides with those who dismissed her ‘wild imagination’. But to save her small town from an alien invasion, she will have to embrace her dysfunctional past.
“There’s a dumpster-diving, chicken-loving alien-not-alien who might possibly be dead on your toilet. Just your average Tuesday.”
I needed a light-hearted book after my previous read. Black Knight, filled with humor and wit, provided the emotional lift my soul desired. MJ stole my heart with his ‘alien-not-alien’ naivety and philosophical insight. The hopscotch of past and present sometimes left me dizzy; but, Grandis left my imagination on a cliff, beckoning it to jump into the next adventure.
