I read this sci-fi book back in about 1987 in school, at least twice. All I can really remember is it's about a teen boy that meets an alien in human form and they become friends.
In one part, they are in an unoccupied house and I believe the alien was injured and he slowed down time so he could heal. I believe there was a bully involved in the story also.
Been about 34 years since I read it. I'm guessing it was written back in the early '80s. It's not the book Aliens Ate My Homework. Would really love to find it again and buy a copy.
