The Last StarfighterAlan Dean Foster
Alex Rogan is just an average kid, not quite brainy enough to qualify for a college loan and fool enough to get stuck fixing the plumbing on his mother's trailer lot. But he is a videogame genius – and that makes him not just average but very special indeed. Special enough to be recruited by a friendly alien power and whisked off into space to take part in a war for inter-galactic supremacy. There his unique game skills equip him to be The Last Starfighter.
