Trel W Sidorukabout this book: The Alien Club was in fact real. It was my world… The outside world- school, grownups, girls, etc… comprised the alien environment. I was visiting humanity and reporting my findings to the exploration party, known as my neighborhood friends. I was both fascinated and frightened by the new frontier and consider myself lucky to this very day for not only surviving, but thriving in such an unforgiving landscape.
When I originally began writing the book more than 25 years ago, it was going to be something entirely different. Much had changed in my life when I picked the book back up (for a third time) to finish it. I had loved and lost much in my life over that quarter century and thus felt the book needed to be more than just a terrific tale.
In addition, I used the book to bond with my oldest daughter, who in fact was the assistant editor. Therefore, I had no choice but to stay true to the characters; exploring and yes, at times exploiting them in order to show the naked truths that either nurture or neuter a youth's soul.
It was only upon finishing the book, did I realize the true power that the book contained. Life lessons that tackled real issues became strong undercurrents throughout the book and make it a worthwhile read.
Whether you're a teenager looking for greater understanding of what social influences can greatly affect your life's journey, or you're an adult looking to reminisce, The Alien Club is a meaningful dialogue that can help you cope with your life and/or your children's futures.
If you read the reviews, it starts slow. To some, pointless… Some have written that they almost put the book down for good, but were extremely happy that they did not. Don't be fooled by some of the childish chatter, the book tackles: peer pressure, child abuse, bullying, drugs, even your first love.
The Alien Club can be graphically violent at points, but so was my life. I was asked by several readers why I didn't tame those scenes down. The answer- when I was living this life, no one listened to my cries when I begged for the same.
