About the Book:

Phoebe Lane is a lightning rod for monsters.

She and her mom are forced to flee flesh-eating plants, radioactive ants, and blobs from outer space. They survive thanks to Phoebe’s dad—an invisible titan, whose giant eyes warn them where the next monster attack will take place.

All Phoebe wants is to stop running from motel to motel and start living a monster-free life in New York or Paris. But when her mom mysteriously vanishes, Phoebe is left to fend for herself in small-town Pennybrooke.

That's when Phoebe starts to transform…

Christian McKay Heidicker, author of Cure for the Common Universe, returns with a book unlike any other, challenging perceived notions of beauty, identity, and what it means to be a monster.

This title will be released on September 11, 2018.

About the Author: 
Christian McKay Heidicker watched a lot of TV as a kid. (Probably too much.) It disturbs/enthralls him to think that the characters he was watching were sentient. (They probably were.) Attack of the 50 Foot Wallflower is his second novel. His first novel, Cure for the Common Universe, was about how he plays too many video games. Learn more at


Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This one could have used some major humor but as it sits it was still really good.  I had a blast. 

Do I Recommend this book? If you love those old horror/science fiction books from the 50's and 60's then this one is for you! 

Notes and Opinions: Ok so this one is all about those old cheesey movies and comics etc from the 50's and 60's.  I really loved what the author did with this one.  I didn't care for all the chauvinist guys in the book but it was a clear depiction of that time frame.

The world that this author has created was awesome. I can't say to much becuase it will give the story away but lets just say that what if your life was a tv show and it was all up to you to save everyone?  Well that is pretty much what this book is. Its up to Phoebe to do some things to save the world.  And let me tell you I did not see the twist coming in this one!

I really hope for a follow up to this title becuase I really want to see what else this author can do with this world.  I loved all the characters and the story and I just couldn't put it down.

If you are a scifi lover etc you should totally read this one like now!

Go Into This One Knowing: 50's and 60's Horror/Scifi Movies, Great Characters, MONSTERS!!
