Eight year old Toby Floren was on an adventure, chasing bank-robbers, and disintegrating aliens in the woods behind his house. He didn’t mean to get lost.
His parents said that monsters aren’t real, and his dad didn’t see anything when they went back to find his knife.
It was just his imagination. That’s all. Monsters aren’t real.
Toby is fifteen now, and uses the woods as a place of solace. They’re somewhere where he can be alone, get away from everything, and think. Seeing the monster scared him again now, just as much as before. But now he’s a little older, and that thing from seven years ago deserves another look…
Fifteen year old Toby found a friend when he found the creature living in the woods. A friend he calls Owen.
DWELLER is Toby and Owen’s story. It’s about a bond formed between two… souls, a friendship that lasts more than fifty years. Like any friendship, there are good times, and bad. Unlike most friendships, there is also blood, and an occasional body to deal with. To be completely honest, there are some parts that are very hard to read through. I was a weepy & snotty mess at times, but I also laughed out loud, too. And – I felt every emotion in between.
Fans (like us) are awesome people. People like Jeff make it easy for us to WANT to be awesome, though. He’s never too busy to take the time to connect with us, and he honestly loves, and appreciates the little things we do just to try and get other people as excited as we are about his books! I’ve said before that I’d love to meet Jeff, and it would probably feel like we were just catching up with an old buddy – inappropriate humor and all! I’d love to meet other fans, too.
If we all got together one night for a ‘#StrandFan‘ get-together, I wonder if he’d come and bail us all out of jail. (oh, you know it would happen!) I bet he’d go to the station to bail us out, but somehow end up arrested with us!
I don’t know how I came across this video posted by #StrandFan Chris Morey, but I had to update this review to post it! This is #fangirling to the nth degree! I love this so much, and I can’t wait to stalk the rest of Chris’s videos to see what else is hidden in there.
Yeah… I bet Chris is a guy we could go to jail with…
