"The fleet narrative never has any dead spots and boasts a clever range of aliens of all shapes, sizes, and appendages. It also has just the right balance of tongue-in-cheek (when a life form happens to have a tongue or a cheek) and serious elements when it comes to pondering moral issues and dilemmas." - Kirkus ReviewsThey have been watching... Because of him, they are coming... Jett Joseph Javelin Junior is enjoying the eighth grade until his scientific tinkering goes dangerously wrong and attracts the attention of The Fold, an extraterrestrial force, tasked with keeping peace in the galaxy. When The Fold comes to collect him, Jett's life is thrown into disarray. From alien abduction, to life in Tower 100, to becoming a castaway on Lanedaar 3 and savior to the Boonans, to flooding the White House with living alien pom-poms that eat everything in sight, Jett's adventure to save Earth from The Neutralization Protocol and integrate it into The Fold is fraught with peril and will keep you guessing all the way to the end."The difference between a one-dimensional, predictable sci-fi read for young adults and one which is a standout in its genre often lies in a combination of author approach and fresh, original details; and the father-son team of Evan & Scott Gordon succeed in going where few writers (much less family authors) have gone before. Rich in characterization, plot, development, and humor, the story unfolds as a winner and is highly recommended not just for the young adult audience it's intended for; but for many an adult sci-fi fan looking for the truly remarkable standout read that includes thought-provoking reflections on the nature of peace, collective consciousness, and ruling systems." - California Bookwatch

The Tinker and the Fold: Book 1

I am not normally a science fiction reader, but acquiesced on my friends' recommendations. I loved this book and could not put it down. It was very clever in how it relates to our world today, I would recommend this book from middle school student to adult. I hope Book 2 will be arriving soon!

Amazing and imaginative!

I stumbled upon this book and bought it because the cover looked so intriguing... All I can say is WOW! It's a really great story and I almost read it all in one sitting. Science fiction, for me, is either really good or really bad. This was excellent and I've already lent it out to someone else. The story line is really creative and the plot is thrilling. What a ride! I hope there are more coming in this series. BRAVO!

Terrific imagination!

I found this book very easy reading. It kept my attention and was interesting from beginning to end. It's incredible that a Middle School student is the author and has such a vivid imagination. I look forward to the second installment!

Cool characters, a page turner

We all read this out loud as a family, our 5th grader and 8th grader loved the story and characters. Kept them from watching tv for 3 days since we read instead.

Great read - couldn't put it down!

I've been impatiently waiting for the next book in the series. Fascinating story, intriguing characters and non-stop action.
