You'll Like It Here (Everybody Does)

By Ruth White
Rating: 4 1/4 stars

With an interesting twist in the beginning, we end up following a family of aliens who have assimilated into Earth--and American--life for years before they are discovered.  As they flee in panic in their craft, they end up in a parallel Earth where some things are the same,but others are extremely different, like uniqueness being a crime.  And who are the mysterious Fathers who are never seen but roundly praised?  What are the little pills everyone takes constantly?  Soon, the Blue family is trapped in a culture they aren't sure they want to be in.  Can they escape before something terrible happens to them?  A fast-moving plot plot and some fun cameos by people who are famous (at least, they are in OUR universe) will draw in readers by the boatload.  This is a fun departure from the author's other books--she will make some new fans!
