About the Book
Author: Michael Okon
Welcome to Monsterland—the scariest place on Earth.
The last couple years of high school have not been fun for Wyatt Baldwin. His parents divorce, then his dad mysteriously dies. He’s not exactly comfortable with his new stepfather, Carter White, either. An on-going debate with his best friends Howard Drucker and Melvin over which monster is superior has gotten stale. He’d much rather spend his days with beautiful and popular Jade. However, she’s dating the brash high-school quarterback Nolan, and Wyatt thinks he doesn’t stand a chance.
But everything changes when Wyatt and his friends are invited to attend the grand opening of Monsterland, a groundbreaking theme park where guests can rock out with vampires at Vampire Village, be chased by actual werewolves on the Werewolf River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.
With real werewolves, vampires and zombies as the main attractions, what could possibly go wrong?

I saw this book thinking, who would come up with a Monsterland theme park, then I though duh everyone! So yeah I was very much interested in this book. I have to say at first look it is a bit short, but that might just be me because I couldn't put this book down and I wanted more! A single mom of two teenage boys remarries a tiny town sheriff, the boys are constantly fighting. One boy gets a chance to meet his hero, who turns out to be way more involved in things than he realizes, including in his own life. At the very end, with the werewolves, ( I won't give it away but...) I was happy that the boy changed, I hope he is in an upcoming book for this series. Maybe that is my wishful thinking, please be another book Michael!
I loved the characters, they reminded me of my boys who are only 8 & 2 (Which by the way my youngest son's name is Wyatt) they fight and yet love/protect each other. The sheriff reminds me of my own step dad, who was my daddy. Long story short, Michael your characters are so life like, I enjoyed every minute of reading. Wow--- at the turn of events with the boys' dad by the way! Did not see that coming.
I would recommend this book to my friends and family- Four Pots of Gold out of Five Pots
