A tale of adventure, friendship, space, time, ingenuity, the possible end of the world, and an 8-foot greenish alien. Oh, and Elvis, of course.
The book tells the story of 14-year-old schoolboy Midge Fly of London, U.K., who accidentally finds himself in possession of a UPS (Universal Positioning System) unit which enables its holder to travel across time, space, and dimensions. The UPS, also a highly advanced, though somewhat prissy, hand-held tablet computer, informs Midge that he is the only one who can save Earth from imminent destruction, and reluctantly Midge sets off along with his best friend, Stick, to do so.
The tale follows Midge and Stick as the UPS takes them through space and dimensions in a race against time and a struggle against a host of obstacles and opponents. Along the way a number of plots unfold and interweave in unexpected ways, following pro- and antagonists as they move their separate ways towards the ultimate goal. Finally, Midge and Stick manage to save the world by such simple means as perseverance, common sense, and a pocket flashlight.
