This is the latest in James Patterson YA fiction. It’s a fun story, especially if you like movies like Men in Black. At first I had trouble adjusting to the narrator, but once his imaginary friends show up, it’s great.
Daniel X has the power to rearrange molecules into any other creation. He uses this power to hunt down the top 25 alien villains hanging out on Earth. It’s a simple story with some light action that you’ll be able to read quickly. This is not The Diary of Anne Frank, but that’s not why you picked up Daniel X.
