Book Passage-Corte Madera|| 51 Tamal Vista Dr. Corte Madera ||
This month’s literary salon speaker will be Kristin Elizabeth Clark, author of Freakboy. She will discuss her writing experience, the creation of Freakboy and the kids/young adult market as a whole.
A short synopsis of Freakboy:
“From the outside, Brendan Chase seems to have it pretty easy. He’s a star wrestler, a video game aficionado, and a loving boyfriend to his seemingly perfect match, Vanessa. But on the inside, Brendan struggles to understand why his body feels so wrong—why he sometimes fantasizes having long hair, soft skin, and gentle curves. Is there even a name for guys like him? Guys who sometimes want to be girls? Or is Brendan just a freak?
