It is always fun to be apart of TBR and Beyond’s book tours. Today is my stop for Jordie and Joey Fell From the Sky by Judie Lauren. You can check out the full tour here!
Twin brothers Jordie and Joey have never met their parents. Maybe it’s because they aren’t from this planet?
When another kid at school tried to force Jordie to show him the “crop circles” on his back that prove he’s an alien, it was Joey who took the kid to the ground. And when the twins got kicked out of their foster home because Joey kissed the other boy who lived there, it was Jordie who told him everything would be okay. And as long as Jordie and Joey are together, it will be. But when the principal calls their current foster mother about a fight at school, the boys know she’ll be done with them. And, from spying in their file, they also know they’re going to be separated.
Determined to face the world side by side rather than without one another, Jordie and Joey set off to find their birth parents. From Arizona to Roswell to Area 51 in the Nevada desert, the twins begin a search for where they truly belong. But Jordie’s about to discover that family isn’t always about the ones who bring you into the world, but the ones who help you survive it.
Jordie and Joey Fell From the Sky is a sweet story about self-acceptance, family, and friends. I was interested in Jordie and Joey Fell From the Sky because of the hint that they might be aliens, I got so much more than a science fiction tale and you will too! The story and characters quickly pulled me in and kept me interested until the last page.
Jordie and Joey were found in the middle of a crop circle with a strange markings on their back, one might say these marks look like crop circles. Since then, their life has been filled with ups and downs as they cycle through foster care families, struggling to fit in where they go. Jordie has it all figured out, their troubles stem from the fact that they are aliens. You will be guessing right along with Jordie, as Judi Lauren does not give much away until the time is right.
I love Jordie and Joey’s adventure to discover the truth. Whatever the truth may be. They visit conspiracy theorist hot spots, Roswell and Area 51 in search of the truth. I enjoy UFO, aliens, and any story that is reminiscent of the thrill and mystery of the X-Files. You get a little of all that as well as a heart warming story of two brother who learn about themselves and that family is more than who your parents are.
You do not have to love middle grade reads to enjoy this sweet story! I highly recommend you give Jordie and Joey Fell From the Sky a try.
