How To Be A Hero On Earth 5Book - 2006-01 : 2006-01 : 2006-01 : 2006-01
Canadian John Fitzgerald is less than thrilled when his eccentric father sends him to England to spend his summer with relatives he’s never met. Then on his way over his plane takes a wrong, and quite disturbing, turn over the Atlantic and drops into a parallel universe—Earth 5—where things are not quite the same: days have fifteen hours, distortion waves warp his brain, and a nefarious government agency decides that inter-dimensional visitorsmust be eliminated at all costs. Talk about your lousy vacation.
But John is no wimp. Together with an unlikely band of fellow non-dimensionals—including Delores the Texan goth, Gus the cane toad–licking Australian, and a truly embarrassing Earth 5 version of his father—he sets off to a remote island that holds the key to their escape home. Like most journeys involving public transportation, this trek will not be easy. Evil scientists, killer cutlery, and nerds with big plans threaten to really ruin John’s summer. With time running out, the gang scrambles to save the day, the universe, and perhaps even their vacations...
