Description - Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron
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. "
