My BFF Is an Alien 4: Invasion
Weather events cause widespread destruction across Singapore. Everyone thinks it's because of climate change, but Abriana and Octavia know better: The Others are behind it. It’s up to the BFFs to stop them before more people get hurt. But when these powerful beings can morph into anyone—their classmates, their parents, their closest friends—the girls don’t know who to trust.
My BFF Is an Alien 3: Turbulence
Secondary Three is turning out to be a great year for Abriana and Octavia. Abri’s standing at BTSGS receives a boost after she wins a major writing competition, and Octavia’s a rising star in the school’s tennis team. But when the BFFs encounter a strange waterspout—part of a barrage of severe weather events happening around the world—the girls suspect The Others are responsible. But their investigation is hampered by an accident that reignites a feud with the mean girls, while a schoolgirl crush threatens to cause a rift between the best friends.
My BFF Is an Alien 2: Sabotage
The Viridians have won the war and Octavia keeps her promise to Abriana and returns to Singapore. This time she’s accompanied by a trusted General who’s tasked to ensure that Octavia—the future ruler of Viridis—is safe. When the two BFFs are together, things don’t stay calm for long. In the sequel, a chance encounter with a wild boar is captured on video by a mysterious stranger and the footage ends up on the internet... and goes viral! Who is responsible and can the BFFs get the video down before Octavia’s alien roots are revealed?
My BFF Is an Alien 1
Meet Abriana Yeo, 13, awkward and friendless. Meet Octavia Wu, a graceful teenage alien with superpowers. Forced to flee her home planet Viridis after an invasion by "The Others", another alien species, Octavia and her parents crash-land in the Singapore heartland.
Pretending to be a foreign student, Octavia enters secondary one and befriends Abriana, who then helps her in her quest to find the Anteris, a missing element the alien family needs if they want to return to Viridis to help in the war effort. All the while, the two girls also need to navigate the intricate web of teenage drama at Bukit Timah Secondary Girls’ School (BTSGS), where mean girls thwart their search efforts every step of the way.
Behind the adventure, mystery and sci-fi, this middle-grade novel also explores the pertinent issues that teenagers typically deal with in a local school setting—friendship, loyalty, CCAs, homework and bullies. There is also no shortage of excitement and intrigue in this sci-fi and adventure. This is the first in a four-book series, for children aged 10 and above.
