About The Book

Title: Escape from Area 51 (The X+Y Files #3)
Author: Wayne A.D. Kerr
Genre: MG Paranormal Adventure

A trip to the top secret military testing base, commonly known as Area 51, was a dream come true for UFO obsessed Xander Bookman - until a strange voice invaded his thoughts. Could the voice really be coming from a joke telling alien, named I-pod, who desperately needs help to escape from the most secure site on the planet? 

Of the many who tried, only one man had ever successfully breached the heavily guarded facility. A brilliant Soviet spy managed to the impossible, but he never made it home. One got in; zero got out.
Until now... 

Join Xander and Yzzie on their most daring adventure yet.

Middle grade readers and adults will enjoy this scary, but fun, action filled, science fiction / paranormal adventure.

The X + Y Files series is 'The X-Files' for kids. Xander and Yzzie are the middle grade version of Mulder and Scully.

Book Excerpts
Excerpt #1
“Help me, I really need to go home.”
“Who said that?” Xander spun around. The voice sounded like it was right behind him.  There was no one there.  Yzzie, Betty, Bert, Randy and Randy’s dad were all focused on the the valley below.
“Wait! You can hear me!” the voice spoke again. “You can hear me… It has been so long… Finally, I can speak to someone.”
Xander stood perfectly still.  What was happening to him.  Buzzing was one thing, but voices.  That couldn’t be good.
“Yzzie, can you come over and help me with this?” Xander called to his cousin.
‘Why is this happening to me?’ Xander thought to himself.
“Yes, why you?” the voice said. “You’re the first human that can hear me.”
‘You can hear my thoughts?’
“Yes, I’ve been able to access the minds  of some humans, not many -- perhaps one in a hundred, but you are the first that I’ve been able to communicate with and believe me, I’ve tried,” the voice told him.
“What do you need, Xander?” Yzzie asked, arriving at the telescope.
“You know that annoying buzzing noise I was hearing,” Xander said to her. “Well, it’s gone.”
“That’s great!” Yzzie said.
“Not so great,” Xander shrugged, “now I’m hearing voices in my head.”
“Just one voice,” the voice corrected him.
“You’re right,” Xander said, glancing skyward, then back at Yzzie, “it’s just one voice.”
“This is bad,” Yzzie said, her eyes clouding with worry.
“No, this is good,” the voice said. “I really need your help.”
“What is the voice saying?” Yzzie asked, once she was sure the others were out of earshot.
“It’s not sure why I’m the only one that can hear it and that it needs my help,” Xander told her.
“Help with what?” she asked.
‘Escape,’ the voice said, ‘I need your help to escape.’
“Escape from where?” Xander asked outloud.
“The voice wants out of your head.” Yzzie looked puzzled.
“I’m in a lab deep below Hangar 18,” the voice explained.
“Here? You mean from inside Area 51?” Xander asked.
“Yes,” the voice answered.


Very cute book about two cousins who have incredible adventures.  In this one, they go to Area 51 on vacation and rescue the Roswell Grey alien.  It was well written and funny.

This would be the perfect book for a young reader, especially one who is interested in space and aliens. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
