Twelve year old Jack Mills lives at 5 Winell Road and probably has the world's weirdest neighbours. Like freakishly weird. And to top it off, he lives with Mum (nosy, interfering, a hideous cook) and Dad (unsuccessful inventor of the Camera Belt and Self-Closing Window).
All in all, it's a boring, embarrassing, dead-end place to live. So when Jack arrives home from school one day, a close shave with a UFO is the last thing he expects. But the fact it doesn't abduct him, and that no one else - not even Mum - sees the gigantic flying saucer hovering over the street, adds a whole new layer of strange.
Soon after, an alien encounter threatens Jack's life and he becomes embroiled in a galaxy-saving mission. With the assistance of his new neighbour, frighteningly tall Roxy Fox, he discovers Winell Road is hiding secrets - secrets Jack might wish he'd never uncovered.

Comments about Winell Road:
The author has done a superb job with POV and it never wavers. The mystery and tension begins at page one, and continue until the end. Jack's new friend, Roxy, keeps you wondering, is she what she appears to be? What about Mum and Dad? Jack has always known they're a little strange, but nothing can prepare him for what will come.
This may be a book for middle graders, but any adult who enjoys SF will enjoy it. I'm almost 70 and I can't wait for book 2.
