The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex

The True Meaning of SmekdayFirst, Gratuity "Tip" Tucci's mom is abducted by aliens. Then, stuff gets really weird. When Tip is assigned a school essay about "The True Meaning of Smekday" (which is what Glorious Captain Smek named Christmas after the Boov took over), she decides to tell her side of the story. Tip tells how she, a Boov named J.Lo, and her temperamental cat, Pig, ended up on a cross country trip to Florida in a flying car called Slushious, trying to save Tip's mom and the Earth (aka Smekland) from yet another alien invasion.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a funny story, books about friendship, or people interested in reading about adventures or really silly alien invasions. The movie Home is actually based on this book, so if you liked the movie, try the book!
