How would you feel if you were the only alien on planet earth?

Book Help I'm an Alien BookDaniel Kendal has only just discovered that he is an alien, but being the only one on Earth makes him feel lonely and weird. If he returned to his home planet  he could go to alien school and have alien friends and he wouldn’t be weird any more. He’d be cool!
