Cassie Meets Melvin: A Story about Love, Snack Food, and World Domination
Publication date: November 2010
Digital Book format: PDF (Adobe DRM)
Cassie is a smart, blonde fifteen-year-old, and Melvin is the green-haired seventeen-year-old punk who loves her. Melvin has it bad for Cassie, but Cassie only has eyes for her prize-winning philodendrons-that is, until a bizarre accident transforms not only his hair, but also her soul.
Love is not easy to come by in Edgar, Florida, a snack food-obsessed town where nothing is as it seems. But this little town, known only for its little creek with some little buttercups beside it, is about to change the fate of the entire world. Cassie's plants are undergoing a transformation of their own, resulting from a mysterious fertilizer Cassie can find only on the Internet. Much to her surprise, her beloved philodendrons gain the ability to move, talk, and think; unfortunately, the plants only have one goal-to destroy the human race and conquer the world.
Part romance, part science fiction, part satire, and part swizzle stick, Cassie Meets Melvin presents a world like no other-and once you've entered, you won't want to leave.
