Welfy Q. Deederhoth: Meat Purveyor, World Savior - Eric Laster
An inventive, fun book that is like a YA combination of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Men In Black, and a dash of Star Wars for good measure. The title character is likable, and I would have liked to know more about a couple of the other characters as well - maybe in a sequel. As I read, I was bit concerned about how the orphan/foster care angle would play out, but I was ultimately satisfied with the way the author portrayed this subject. A fast, appealing read.
