My guest today is Mary Crockett, an award winning poet and one of the co-authors of a great new YA novel “Dream Boy”.
Mary wrote her first poem at the age of 8, an epic about impending nuclear holocaust being diverted by a plucky little eight-year-old girl and her legion of insect friends. Amy and the Ants” was written in rhyming couplets and went on for several pages. Sadly, it was never finished.
Though her first income was for being a hand model for a toilet seat. She continued to write award winning poetry. Deciding to move on to writing novel Mary paired up with author Madelyn Rosenberg, the result of which is a debut and really entertaining YA novel “Dream Boy”.
About “Dream Boy”:
Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date for Homecoming. Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that—a dream. Until the Friday afternoon he walks into her chemistry class.
One of friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of déjà vu. While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin Zirkle may just be her dream come true. But as Annabelle discovers the truth behind dreams—where they come from and what they mean—she is forced to face a dark reality she had not expected. More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come true, so can nightmares.
In other words this great book could be summed up as…
Girl dreams boy. Girl meets boy. Girl, boy, and friends save universe
