The Alien (Animorphs #8) by Katherine Applegate
Published July 1st 1997 by Scholastic Paperbacks


What would you do if you were the only alien trapped on a strange planet? Probably freak out, right? Well, that’s what Ax feels like doing. But as an Andalite warrior-cadet, he has to be pretty cool about stuff like that. He’s been hanging out with the Animorphs ever since the Dome ship was destroyed by the Yeerks and his brother, Prince Elfangor, was destroyed by Visser Three.

Life on Earth is pretty different for Ax. But there is one thing he, Cassie, Marco, Jake, Rachel, and Tobias have in common. Something that one alien, four kids and a hawk know they have to do: stop the Yeerks…




***The following may contain spoilers from previous books as well as the current book***

This is the first book in the series that comes from Ax’s POV. I really enjoyed this one. Ax is an interesting POV to read from and the overall plot for the series begins to thicken here. I also really liked the relationship between Ax and the other humans, particularly Tobias.
