Part human, part machine, and a little bit magic
Sixteen-year-old Boy’s father is Frankenstein’s monster and his mother is the Bride. A hacker and tech geek, Boy has lived his whole life in a secret enclave of monsters hidden beneath a Broadway theater, until he runs away from home. Now, the boy who’s never set foot outside embarks on a madcap road trip with the grand-daughters of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde that takes him deep into the heart of America. Along the way, Boy falls in love, comes to terms with his unusual family, and learns what it really means to be a monster — and a man.
An extract from the author's website jonskovron.com:
"Jon was born in Columbus, Ohio. He’s lived a lot of places, including New York, Seattle, and Pittsburgh. He and his two sons currently reside just outside Washington, DC.
Jon Skovron has never really fit in, and has no plans to start now. After twelve years of Catholic school, he went on to study acting at a conservatory program for four years before returning to his first love, writing. His second novel, Misfit, was recently published in August 2011 by Abrams Books. Bestselling author Holly Black called it “A diabolically delightful paranormal” and Kirkus (starred review) called it, “Thoughtful, scary and captivating."
