Back of the Book Blurb #98 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title). The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post. Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs.  You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

The Aliens Are Coming

The class had heard that the aliens were taking over, but no one would listen to their ideas. All of the adults just thought they were little kids and couldn’t do anything to help. They had looked up enough information on the computer and Brainy Billy (that’s what everyone called him) was able to hack in some government sites to learn what was going on. They knew the best way to conquer the aliens was with mind control and not with guns and military action. While all of the teachers and administrators were running around like chickens with their heads cut off, the class decided to take action. Brainy Billy was their leader and he was going to pool all of their mind activity into fighting the aliens. First, they needed to practice how to pool their mind strength. Then they would take the next steps.  (146 words)

Looks like they're about to harness that secret weapon and save the world!

Pat--I heard a "dum dum dummmm!" at the end of your blurb, because you had me at the edge of my seat at the end.

Thanks for playing along.
