Bell Watkins and the Mistrunners
From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Conner Kressley!
Bell Watkins lives in a world of leprechauns, fairies, and witches, on paper at least. As inspiration for the lead character in his grandfather's wildly successful book series, fifteen year old Bell spends his days dodging paparazzi, gorging himself on pizza, and complaining to his best friend Kara about his lack of a girlfriend.
When he's attacked by a strange creature in an alley and saved by a cute girl who appears from the mist however,things start to take a turn for the strange. The boy soon learns that the world of his grandfather's books is very real, and so is his place in it. Bell is a Mistrunner, a mystical being with amazing powers who's tasked with keeping the world safe from the things that go bump in the night. When the attacks keep coming, Bell and the cute girl from the alley must find a way to keep him safe, get to the bottom of just who it is that wants him dead, and deal with that pesky bird that just wont stop following him around. As if his plate wasn't full enough, Bell also has to learn to navigate through the dos and don'ts of the Mistrunner world, a list that includes such helpful tidbits as:
- Never text while floating.
- Leprechauns are not as cuddly as cereal commercials would lead you to believe.
- And, no matter how hot a selkie looks in a bikini, remember she's still a seal underneath.
