The galaxy is on the brink of war and only four dysfunctional, hormone-driven teenagers from Earth stand in its way. God help us all.

Cooper Simpson can’t believe his luck when an otherwise crappy day ends with an invitation to join the International Galactic Council. As Earth’s first leader on the interstellar body, he figures it’s got to be better than the pressures of home and troubles at school. 
Unfortunately, it doesn’t him take long to realise space can also suck the big one. The other races look down on humanity, danger and death lurk around every moon, and then there’s Earth’s other councillors - best mate The Ginge, who has a tenuous grip on reality, plus the last two people he would ever voluntarily spend time with - cowardly Pete and school thug Knuckles, who prefers to punch first and ask questions later. 
The lads might have the fate of the world in their hands, but at first they’re more interested in cute alien girls and a machine that can literally create anything they want – including limitless free pizza. 
It sounds perfect. But as they delve deeper into council politics, they discover a conspiracy that threatens to tear the galaxy apart. With the world on the brink of war it’s up to them to save the day. Whatever the outcome, life will never be the same again.

GOLD MEDALTeen Literature Fiction2013 Global Ebook Awards----SA WeekendThe Advertiser4 starsThe galaxy is on the brink of war and four dysfunctional, hormone-driven teenagers are Earth's only hope. Adelaide writer Pike's twisted and colourful imagination straps the reader in and blasts off on a wild intergalactic ride. The humour is sharp and witty and the story is peppered with clever pop culture references, particularly from the world of gaming. From the AC/DC cameo to unexpected teenage fatherhood, the plot twists are utterly unpredictable. The boys find themselves thrust into a position of power in the intergalactic power structure, and, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, they are forced to make difficult choices. A fantastic debut book that is targeted at teenage boys but which will entertain a much wider audience.Derek Pedley---The Indie Ebook review Site 88/100"Great book with a fantastic cast of teenage boys and varied amazing aliens. I laughed aloud at several points and thoroughly enjoyed the whole read. I will definitely be picking up the sequel."Jess MountifieldFULL REVIEW -
