Garfield Logan has spent his entire life being overlooked. Even in a small town like Eden, Georgia, the 17-year-old with green streaks in his hair can’t find a way to stand out–and the clock is ticking. Senior year is almost over. If Gar doesn’t find a way to impress the Chosen Ones–the social elite at Bull Creek High School–he will never know what it’s like to matter. Gar’s best friends, Stella and Tank, don’t understand why he cares what other people think. They miss their funny, pizza-loving, video game-obsessed best friend.
Then Gar accepts a wild dare out of the blue. It impresses the Chosen Ones and his social status soars. But other things are changing, too. Gar grows six inches overnight. His voice drops and, suddenly, he’s stronger and faster. He’s finally getting everything he wanted, but his newfound popularity comes at a price. Gar has to work harder to impress his new friends. The dares keep getting bigger and the stakes keep getting higher.
When Gar realizes the extent of his physical changes, he has to dig deep and face the truth about himself–and the people who truly matter–before his life spirals out of control.
I know it seems as if I was in a reading slump all year and now I am finally coming out of it. I hope that is true, but honestly I’m not sure. These last couple of books have been graphic novels, so they definitely have been quicker reads. If you haven’t read my very short review of Teen Titans: Raven, you can read it here.
This book is written and illustrated by the same authors Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo as Raven one. I honestly am loving this duo for writing graphic novels for the Teen Titans series. This book as you might have read in the synopsis is the story about Garfield Logan soon to be Beast Boy and his origin story and how he comes to HIVE. I’m still learning about the series and characters since I was never really into the Teen Titans in my younger years.
I’m glad that I’m getting exposed to them now and I’m excited to see what happens next in the series since the next book in the series is expected to come out in early 2021. I would highly recommend this book if you were into the Teen Titans as a child, you are into graphic novels, or need an easy read. I hope to be back again sometime soon with another post!
