How I Stole Johnny Depp's Alien Girlfriend by Gary Ghislain

David Gerswhin is lying in bed next to Zelda. This is the closest he's ever got to a girl (and a super hot one no less) and it should be one of the most romantic moments in his life, but alas, he knows that all Zelda can think about is Johnny Depp. No, not like your average crazy-about-Johnny's-good-looks-and-bad-boy-image girls.  Zelda is a warrior from the planet of Vahalal and she is on a mission to kidnap her chosen one, aka Johnny Depp, back so that he can, well, help make babies to prevent the extinction of her Amazonian-like race. Yes, at first David and his therapist father thought Zelda is delusional too, but after she's showed off some of her out of this world space moves, he's convinced of her crazy story and content to be her loyal Pudin (basically like a slave, pronounced "pudding") and race around Paris with her till she finds Johnny, all the while thinking why oh why is he not the right match. 
This is one wild adventure. Funny at times and plenty weird and ridiculous, and it's one of those books you just have to shush your inner voice of reason and just run with it. David's mom is a total riot, and the ruthless Vahalalians are equally entertaining. A good summer read.

    Definitely a good book, worth my time. It satisfied my thirst for sci-fi stories, and frankly, any book with the words "futuristic fetish outfit" is a good book to me. The book exploits how a normal teenage boy in Paris can have his life changed in less than a week. If you have the time, go and check his book out.

    Plenty of over-the-top plot elements, but Mr. Ghislain's light and funny writing style make it worth the read.
