In this delightful coming-of-age tale, 13-year-old Morgan “McFactoid” McCracken tackles bullies, new inventions, and unexpected celebrity. Morgan, who resorts to reciting strange facts when flustered, is dealing with the unwanted attention of the school bully, Brad Buckholtz, a cavemanesque nemesis who picks on Morgan because of his new (and unwanted) facial hair. A natural inventor, Morgan decides to come up with a product that can stop his facial hair from growing—and instead comes up with a product that helps hair grow. Launched suddenly and hilariously into celebrity, Morgan must navigate his new world and relationships with care. Will he now become friends with the suddenly friendlier Brad Buckholtz? Will he defeat the thieves who wish to steal the formula from him for their own profit? Will he choose fame or the affection of the beautiful and intelligent girl next door? You’ll have to read to find out, but you’ll enjoy this witty, tongue-in-cheek journey just as much as the destination.
The McVentures of Me, Morgan McFactoid is a quick and enjoyable read, filled with fun and endearing little facts that are as quirky as the narrator.
