Gratuity Tucci (call her Tip)&   gets a fairly early start behind the wheel.&   She's 11--and she's good if you want to know.&   &   Plus, laws don't matter too much&   these days, and Tip is desperate to find her mom who was abducted by aliens on Christmas Eve (technically Smekday Eve since the Boov&   invasion).&   So while the rest of the American population gets shipped via rocketpod to Florida--the proposed new United State of America--Tip heads south in&   the family car to search for her mother. &   On the way, &   she meets a solitary Boov mechanic named J. Lo.&   He's unarmed, and he can fix her battered car (make it fly), so she agrees to give him a ride, which leads to two&   alarming discoveries.&   One is that J.Lo turns out to be not so bad.&   &   The other&   is that J.Lo is #1 on the Boov's most wanted list for making the hugest mistake in the history of Smekland (or earth depending on your point of view).&   Now Tip and her many-legged friend are the only ones who can save the planet from a really big catastrophe. &   &
