Waiting on Wednesday #11

I'm participating in this weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly awaiting.

This Week’s Pick
Man Made BoyMan Made Boy by Jon Skorvon
Expected Publication: October 3rd 2013

Love can be a real monster.

Sixteen-year-old Boy’s never left home. When you’re the son of Frankenstein’s monster and the Bride, it’s tough to go out in public, unless you want to draw the attention of a torch-wielding mob. And since Boy and his family live in a secret enclave of monsters hidden under Times Square, it’s important they maintain a low profile.

Boy’s only interactions with the world are through the Internet, where he’s a hacker extraordinaire who can hide his hulking body and stitched-together face behind a layer of code. When conflict erupts at home, Boy runs away and embarks on a cross-country road trip with the granddaughters of Jekyll and Hyde, who introduce him to malls and diners, love and heartbreak. But no matter how far Boy runs, he can’t escape his demons—both literal and figurative—until he faces his family once more.

This hilarious, romantic, and wildly imaginative tale redefines what it means to be a monster—and a man.

To put it bluntly, this book sounds awesome. We all know the classic Frankenstein story but now we get to read about his son? Totally worth the wait.
