Arthur Dent was living a normal human life- well, as normal as lying in the mud in front of a bulldozer can get- when Ford Prefect, Arthur's friend from work- claims that the earth is about to be destroyed! Seconds before the earth is wiped out to make room for an intergalactic freeway, Ford saves Arthur by getting him off the doomed planet. He then reveals himself as the researcher for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy- an encyclopedia on, well, everything- and the fact that Ford is an alien! The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a different kind of book- one that brings you on a mind-bendingly odd adventure through the quirks of the universe. I recommend this book to any teens who want to change up their reading a little and read a book that is a bit weirder than the rest. Happy hitchhiking!
