The View from Mars (Hardcover)
12 year-old Mars has always been an outsider, still hung up on things like delivering the perfect comeback to a kid who made fun of him--two years ago. Saddled with crippling anxiety about everything from marshmallows to his lack of athleticism, he has difficulty finding the courage to do anything...and things are about to get worse.
His mom has announced they are moving cross-country to Los Angeles, where he doesn't know a soul. Mars is resolved to one mission: facing his fears to rally both his bookish sister Barrie and selfish brother Sumo to get his parents back together again. But how?
Written from the heart--not literally, because that's scientifically impossible--THE VIEW FROM MARS is a comedically insightful coming-of-age story told from the perspective of a boy struggling to become a young man.
And who would know that experience more than the co-authoring team of Daylen and Kai Larsen (age 12) and their socially awkward dad?
