Monsterjunkies: An American Family Odyssey. Book one Being a Normal Family is a State of Mind
The Monsterjunkies: An American Family Odyssey Three fourteen-year-old boys are plotting to sneak onto the grounds of the eerie Monsterjunkie Manor to see what strange creatures and other mysteries abound. Meanwhile, Cromwell (aka Crow) Monsterjunkie, their classmate, sits alone at his desk painting his latest monster model, The Creature of The Black Lagoon at 1313 Road to Nowhere in Foggy Point, Maine. His “Cromwellian” designation by classmates was used to tease and harass him for most of his young life. The association with the Monsterjunkie name also brought suspicion based on rumors about what kinds of things went on at their mansion, resulting in jokes about Crow being a “monster” and a “junkie.” It did not help that he was short, chubby, and liked all things dark and macabre. Back in the 7th grade, he even tried paying other kids to be his friends. It worked for a little while. Over time, though, Crow and his sister Indigo take risks to open up their special sanctuary in a series of enchanting discoveries and bonding experiences on their parents’ vast property. The Monsterjunkies include a cryptozoologist father, a mother with pagan roots, two Goth tweens coping with bullying and identity, the beauty and feelings of first romance, social angst, some unusual, enchanting beings that live in seclusion on their property, and an undercurrent of threat from nefarious power brokers who do not approve of their work or their lifestyle. Rutherford B. Grimes II is certain that the family is harboring illegal animals and operating in the illicit trade of exotic wildlife. He plans to financially ruin the Monsterjunkies and have them deported from the US while his son and his gang assault one of their friends and steal a drawing from her that could expose the Monsterjunkie family. The younger Grimes and his cohorts then videotape two of Indigo’s friends at a local LGBT (Lesbian Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) support group meeting, post this information on Facebook, and manipulate images to humiliate the girls, who must now face the fall-out from being publicly “outed” on social media. What it means to be different, why people wear masks to conceal their identities, and the desire for social acceptance are key themes in The Monsterjunkies: An American Family Odyssey.
