I haven’t done a post in awhile now, but I just had to let you know about the debut novel of my husband, writer Ryu Cope, called The Grass Haired Girl.
It starts off with twelve year old Cody Stone – a lonely kid living in the boring Midwest.
Cody wants to be a hero, but according to all the books he’s ever read, heroes are always some kind of “Chosen One.” They are never scrawny losers living in small farming communities with angry divorced parents.
When there is a strange power outage at Cody’s favorite place in Angusville – an Eighties retro video game arcade called the Steel Castle – he passes out and wakes up, hours later, in a nearby park.
As he races home in a panic because he never finished all his chores and his abusive father is due home any minute, Cody has no idea that his life is about to change forever – During the blackout at the arcade two strange beings from another realm crossed over into Angusville, one evil and one good.
And they are both looking for Cody.
Check it out on Amazon.
