LATEST REVISION IN POST #7
When straight A's and perfect spelling fail to win him his parents’ approval, ten-year-old Bricen sets his mind on defeating a memory-devouring monster to impress his family. Heth is an intimidating beast, though. When a child looks her in the eye, his parents and friends forget him and the poor kiddo is banished forever.
But Bricen is not afraid. Aided by his perky best friend and a grumpy Chihuahua-sized wizard, Bricen journeys to the monster's castle. Together, they escape from the cruel manager of a wizard-exploiting factory, and restore peace between giants who do not let their kids study Alphysica. When Bricen finally finds Heth's home, he's prepared to beat the mighty monster. Only Heth isn't the creature Bricen expects, but someone he's known for a very long time.
THE MISFIT’S JOURNEY TO THE MONSTER’S CASTLE is an MG fantasy, complete at 36,000 words. With humor, adventure, and an omniscient narrator that sneaks in from time to time, Bricen's tale will appeal to fans of Lemony Snicket’s A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS and Pseudonymous Bosch's THE NAME OF THIS BOOK IS SECRET.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
