Hilo Book 1: The Boy Who
Crashed to Earth by Judd Winick

D.J. and his friend Gina are totally normal kids. But that was before a mysterious boy came crashing down from the sky! Hilo doesn’t know where he came from, or what he’s doing on Earth. (Or why going to school in only your underwear is a bad idea!) . . . But what if Hilo wasn’t the only thing to fall to our planet? Can the trio unlock the secrets of his past? Can Hilo survive a day at school? And are D.J. and Gina ready to save the world?
HILO is Calvin and Hobbes meets Big Nate and is just right for fans of Bone and comic books as well as laugh-out-loud school adventures like Jedi Academy and Wimpy Kid!

This was a super funny graphic novel that will appeal to readers of all ages! I know it is geared towards children, but I enjoyed it as an adult. This graphic novel was action packed and it had an interesting science fiction plot. I devoured it in one sitting. 

The friendships in this book were so cute. The three friends were so dedicated to each other, and I adored their relationships. The characters in this book also made me laugh out loud so many times. Some of the humor was a little childish, but I still enjoyed it.

Overall, I really enjoyed this graphic novel. This was the first graphic novel I have ever read, and I can tell I will be reading more in the future. I am extremely excited to read the other novels in this series!
