Title: Creature Kid
(The Teenage Chronicles: Vol. 1)
Author: Rashad Freeman
Length: 186 pages
Rating: 5 stars
Why do the movies always portray mutants as having some kind of glorious plight? If a kid got bit by a radioactive spider he’d probably puke webs right before he died. Men that can walk through bullets and fly don’t dress in tights and pretend to be newspaper reporters. And there are no special flashlights to shine in the air to signal you when there’s trouble. You want to be a superhero and fight crime? Prospects are unlikely at best. Chances are you’d just get sued by the criminals you arrested and put in prison for delivering your own vigilante justice.
The truth of the matter is living as a mutant is risky business. Uncontrollable outbreaks, delusions of grandeur and don’t forget the horde of scientists eager to pick you apart to figure out what makes you tick. Did you really expect a special school to crop up just to take care of all the misfortunate adolescents? Or you could create your own little team by adding Fantastic, Super, or Glorious to the front of a number. No, you wouldn’t be so lucky. And neither was Anthony Dimair, as a matter of fact he was the exact opposite. Now he must survive long enough to find the meaning of his Uncle’s cryptic message while avoiding capture, fighting the elements, and trying to not end up as dinner. -Amazon
Just A Boy?Anthony Dimar is just trying to survive his freshman year of high school in one fairly intact physical and mental piece. He seems to be doing a good job of it too, until...
HIS WINGS COME IN!
Yes, you heard right!
No, this was not the blessed event that he had been waiting for to make his life complete.
NO...IT IS NOT TIME FOR THE SUPERMAN MUSIC AND TIGHTS!
Sorry this is not that kind of story.
In this story, after the wings which by the way, are of the "furry bat variety" and not the "angelic sexy angel type" that seem to be all the rage right now. Everything that can come out of the woodwork to attack Anthony and his motley crew of friends does just that.
A Read Anyone Could Love
This book is one to give to the person in your life who "doesn't read". With instantly likeable characters, a fast-paced but well constructed plot and story line, and well written scenes this book is a really great read.
Readers will be surprised to find that though this book is quite fun and written from the viewpoint of a boy in his early teens, it is a very intelligent story.
Thank you Mr. Freeman for an original tale of friendship, adventure, bravery and fun in 186 pages!
This was a joy to read and I can't wait for the next installment.
