The Monkeyface ChroniclesBook - 2010
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Philip’s aphorism-toting grandfather used to say “Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect,” and Philip is about to embark on a life journey of payback that has everything to do with cause in effect. Philip’s journey takes him through the most unusual family circumstances, where no one was really who they seemed to be, whether it was his reclusive scientist father, or his Citizen Kane-like grandfather.
For those who love lots of twists and turns in a plot, this award winning coming of age story is for you. Philip Skyler born with a severe facial deformity, thus the terrible nickname “Monkeyface” has been the main target of bullies, and unfairly labeled by school administrators.
Through his grandfather’s guidance, the support of his twin Michael and the friendship his classmate Adeline, Philip manages to persevere through his high school years. The book veers off in all sorts of directions where topics such as fundamental Christianity, adult movies, small town politics, homosexuality and dysfunctional families are all explored. This book is at once unbelievable but entirely riveting.
