||DJ is one of five children from a
very busy, talented family-- all except DJ that is, who
feels unexceptional. And then one day, DJ is sitting by
himself on the roof of his clubhouse when BOOM! –a boy
dressed only in silver underpants falls to earth. Hilo
can’t recall who he is or where he is from.DJ lends him
some clothes, takes him home for dinner, and introduces
him to his best friend Gina.Since Hilo doesn’t know any
better, he often does silly things like eating grass or
drinking the salad dressing. But as Hilo’s memory begins
to return, he wonders, “What if he wasn’t the only thing
that came through the portal to earth?” Hilo, DJ, and Gina
bravely confront the robots sent to destroy the earth and
bring Hilo home. (Pennsylvania Young
