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.
3 Reasons to Preorder Teen Titans: Beast Boy
A new take on a well-loved team. DC fans are always seeking new Teen Titans stories. Kami Garcia really gets these characters and their team dynamic. These individual books give you a solid sense of the characters but gives you an updated story on them. I can’t wait to see when they come together…(you saw that, right?).
The art. If you’ve read Raven, you’re familiar with Gabriel Picolo’s art. Clean line art and color guide your way. It’s clear Gabriel and Kami are partners in the Teen Titans story.
Beloved writers writing new modalities! You may know Kami from Beautiful Creatures or The Lovely Reckless or X-Files or her role at YallWest/Fest. She’s pretty awesome overall. Seeing her write comics is a treat (if you haven’t checked out her Harley, I highly recommend you do).
