THE MEN IN BLACK ARE BACK—
TO SAVE THE PLANET FROM CERTAIN DOOM.

When an unauthorized spacecraft lands smack-dab in the middle of New York’s Central Park, and is found abandoned with enough antimatter weapons to turn the island of Manhattan into a new Atlantis, it’s a job for Men in Black—the top-secret organization that monitors the activities of all extraterrestrials living on Earth. There’s a new ET in town, as beautiful as she is deadly.

Immediately, Agent J is assigned to the case, but in order to succeed in his mission, he must locate his old partner, Agent K, whose memory was wiped clean when he “retired.” For it’s K, now a postal worker in Massachusetts, who holds the key: In his mind rests a powerful secret—one that could save the earth, or destroy everything, if it falls into the wrong tentacles. . . .

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School-When agent Jay discovers that the evil plot by the Kylothian alien Serleena centers on a power source called the Light of Zartha, he knows he must find his retired partner, Kay. In order to fill in the history of Serleena's past visit to Earth, the importance of the Light of Zartha, and where it is hidden, Kay's neutralized memory will need specialized help. It soon becomes clear that the Men in Black team is pitted against a formidable foe. Serleena, disguised as a beautiful woman, takes over the MIB Headquarters, holds Zed hostage, and stages a final battle with the agents that will decide the fate of the world. Fast-paced action scenes and lots of entertaining one-liners carry the plot from beginning to end. Fun for readers of science fiction and moviegoing fans, this title may also attract reluctant readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars this book is ok--but the ending's not the same Aug. 2 2002
By Emily
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is fairly close to the movie with the exception of the ending. in the movie, Laura herself is the Light of Zartha, not the bracelet. The daughter of Princess Lauranna, she is sent off to the planet of Zartha to fulfill her destiny and rule her people.
In this book, which, don't get me wrong, is good and hilariously funny, the bracelet is sent off to the planet of Zartha, and Laura is deneuralized and sent to her NYC home.
that's about the only discrepency that i can see. Actually, the additional info in the other parts of the books helps fill you in on other areas, (such as, when Kay and Jay depressurized MIB HQs and fly in, it explains that the security guard was fastened into his seat with a chain so he didn't budge)
Overall, I liked it, and i'd buy it again, even though it doesn't have quite the same ending.
