Niki a galactic princess is hiding from her parents (ruthless rulers of the galaxy) in the ordinary, dull town of Middling, Planet Earth. Garvin, is just an unremarkable human boy so when Niki is hunted down by a talking cat and then her alien parents, Gavin proves just how awesome unremarkable really is. A really funny adventure full of spaceships and Aliens and about friendship and how family isn’t always about blood relatives.
