Charlie and the Whiz Kids must separate fact from otherworldly fiction when Charlie sees a UFO in this hilarious fourth novel of the Charlie Numbers Adventures series.
Charlie Lewis has always been a practical, logical kid, driven by his love of math and science. But when he witnesses a mysterious light in the woods, he becomes convinced that there are UFOs among us. In the midst of the yearly UFO New Year’s bash, Charlie and his gang of Whiz Kids—plus a few old friends—race to uncover the true aliens among partygoers in costume.
And, of course, nefarious villains emerge to stop them in their tracks…
