J.J. Gardner- Men In Black (Scholastic 1997) 3.5 Stars
James Edwards, now know as Jay, has just been recruited into the MIB and he has no idea what he has gotten himself into. Fighting to keep the peace among the aliens secretly living among us here on Earth, they have discovered that Earth is on the destruction path of two battling nations. Can they find the resolution before it is too late?
This book stuck to the movie better than most books, which was really nice to see. It was a cheesy book, based on a cheesy movie. That being said, I liked the movie. The characters are not overly developed, but were amusing nonetheless. The storyline was pretty good and kept it interesting. The introduction sets you up for the rest of the book nicely and I loved the ending. It is a fitting end that wraps it all up in a nice little bow and sets you up for the sequel. Overall it was a good novelization of the movie.
