9780142427439: Man Made Boy

“Refreshing...Never veers into horror, staying strictly on the side of realistic—if, you know, there were monsters—and heartwarming adventure...An original.”
—io9.com
 
“Monstrously fun...Heartwarming, hilarious, and full of memorable characters. You won’t be able to put this one down!”
—John Corey Whaley, Michael L. Printz Award-winning author of Where Things Come Back and Noggin


His name, believe it or not, is Boy.
 
Boy is (among other things):
 
seventeen years old,
 
a genius computer hacker on the brink of creating an artificial intelligence,
 
and obsessed with a girl.
 
But there’s something even more that sets Boy apart.
 
For one, he’s never been out in public.
 
And here’s something else: he isn’t even human.
 
Now it’s time for him to run away from the home he’s known and step out into the real world. But it’s a hard world out there...
 
Especially if you’re a monster.

About the Author:

Jon Skovron (jonskovron.com) has been an actor, musician, lifeguard, Broadway theater ticket seller, warehouse grunt, technical writer, and web developer. He has nine fingers, dislikes sweets, and possesses a number of charming flaws. He was born in Columbus, Ohio, and after traveling around a while, he has settled, somewhat haphazardly, in the Washington, D.C., area, where he and his two sons can regularly be seen not fitting into the general Government scene.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Maybe it was the darkness or the vortexes or the magic flute player, but I just said it.

“I have a huge crush on you.”

“You are so incredibly lame for saying that.” The weight of her head abruptly left my chest.

“Wh-what?” My heart pounded in my chest. “Why?”

“Because at a time like this . . .” Her face was now less than an inch from mine. “You should just kiss me.”

So I did. As soft and sweet as her voice was, as her skin was, it was nothing compared to her lips. Her hot breath escaped into mine and I thought this must be what her heart felt like. I held her gently; she was so small and delicate that I could not help but surrender my strength to her.

Then she pressed against me and breathed in my ear, “Freedom.”
