How To Be A Human is a warm and otherworldly story about finding friendship in the most unlikely of places from highly-acclaimed and much-loved children's author Karen McCombie.

Kiki has been dumped by the Popular Crew and is feeling the pain of rejection. Wes is a loner and an easy target for the school bullies. Both could use a friend. The Star Boy is marooned on Earth, awaiting rescue. From the safety of the basement of Fairfield Academy he watches the humans, in particular Kiki and Wes. But soon studying them from afar isn’t enough and, keen to uncover just what it means to be a human, the Star Boy follows them into school and into their lives… Could the stars have aligned for the most unusual friendship?

'Narrator Robyn Holdaway's lively voice and British accent drop listeners right into the heart of Fairfield Academy, where Kiki and Wes have just started secondary school. After Kiki's popular friends shut her out, she forms an unlikely friendship with Wes when they share a surprising secret. They discover that an alien has crashed to Earth and is living in the boiler room of their school. Holdaway creates distinct voices for the snooty teen girls, a male bully, Kiki's precocious younger brother, and, most memorably, Star Boy, the alien. Listeners will laugh at Star Boy's curiosity and enthusiasm to be experiencing life on Earth firsthand. Music separates each passing day, adding to the magical feel of this heartwarming audiobook.'
