Tripp Unleashed

 


Tripp Unleashed

by Darren Simon

Genre: Middle-Grade Fantasy 

Tripp Taylor is a teenager trying to hide his genetic disorder and live a normal life, but that’s hard to do when the smallest morsel of food and the tiniest sip of liquid bring about a change in him—a metamorphosis he cannot control, making him a danger to himself and those around him. At least that’s what he’s been told by his father and the doctor who has devoted his life to finding a cure.

By day, Tripp plays by their rules. By night, Tripp journeys through the city from one convenience store to the next to taste real food (frozen burritos are his favorite). Then comes the night when he chooses the wrong convenience store, for on that night an armed robber enters the store and threatens everyone’s life. From that first transformation come others, and soon Tripp finds himself on a collision course with destiny as a madman pushes him to use his powers, a government that fears him tries to control him, and dark secrets lead him down a dangerous path—one that could make him a hero or twist him into a monster. And that all depends on whether he survives, and the odds aren’t in his favor.

  4. Thanks, Debby and Nancy for the comments. The publisher, Tell-Tale Publishing, takes great care in developing eye catching covers. As for the story, it's a wild superhero origin story that I think readers 12 and up would really enjoy.

  7. Thank you for the comments. I know I'm the writer of the book, so take this for what it's worth, but I do think middle-grade, new adult and young adult readers would enjoy this novel, especially if they are into superhero stories, and parents can feel comfortable allowing their teens to enjoy the book.

  15. This does sound as if it is more meant to be a young people's book, but I must admit I am now curious about the changes that would be caused by a genetic reaction to food!

Wait! Stop! Are you leaving the same old comment on all the blog pages? Try switching things up a bit. I love reading your comments, but if its the same thing each time... it feels like spam. And NO ONE likes spam...
