Publisher Comments:

Idea Deity believes that he exists in a novel written by an omnipotent author andthat he will die in chapter 64. Reacher Mirage sings lead in the undercover rock bandYouforia, a band that exists in Ideas world as an Internet hoax that Idea himself perpetuated.Beautiful and mysterious Eunice Truant links their destinies, and when theyall meet within the pages of the epic fantasy novel Fireskulls Revenant, the threat ofchapter 64 looms large.Being trapped in a bad book can be a nightmare—just ask Idea Deity.

Synopsis:

Winner of the Michael L. Printz Awary. All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school--and life in general--with a minimum of effort. But that's before he's given the news that he's dying.

School of Rock meets World of Warcraft in this edgy, highly original YA novel of alternate realities, rock 'n' roll, time travel, and mythical characters, by DC Comics writer and Sci-Fi scribe, Robert Jeschonek, now available in paperback.

Kim Griswell, November 9, 2010 (view all comments by Kim Griswell)
Looking for a road trip read that involves mad cow disease mixed with physics, myth, music, and insights into the nature of death and reality? OK. Then how about a dwarf, a gnome, an angel, and a conspiracy to trap people in snow globes? What if the kid with mad cow disease gets to have sex with the angel? Going Bovine is all of that and a whiff of reefer. But you have to have a pretty good brain to go along for this ride!
