Expected Publication: October 15th 2019
Page Count: 304
Genres: YA Contemporary Fantasy
In the sequel to F.T. Lukens’ The Rules and Regulations for Mediating Myths & Magic, spring semester of Bridger Whitt’s senior year of high school is looking great. He has the perfect boyfriend, a stellar best friend, and an acceptance letter to college. Oh, he also has this incredible job: assistant to Pavel Chudinov, an intermediary tasked with helping cryptids navigate the modern world. His days are filled with kisses, laughs, pixies, and the occasional unicorn. Life is awesome.
But as graduation draws near, Bridger’s perfect life begins to unravel. Uncertainties about his future surface, his estranged dad shows up out of nowhere, and, perhaps worst of all, a monster-hunting television show arrives in town to investigate the series of strange events from last fall. The show’s intrepid host will not be deterred, and Bridger finds himself trapped in a game of cat and mouse that could very well put the myth world at risk. Again.
REASONS I’M EXCITED FOR MONSTER OF THE WEEK
“The Rules and Regulations for Mediating Myths & Magic“. I absolutely loved the first book in this series and really hoped it would get a sequel. It’s a bit of a mix of Percy Jackson and Simon vs.
Representation. The MC is bisexual and his boyfriend is Latino.
F T Lukens. I really loved her writing style and the sarcastic, deadpan voice she gives Bridger.
