Horribly Marvelous: The Diary of Cyndi Victoria Chase (Part One: Miracle Week) by Troy CLE!
This book is part of the Marvelous World series published by Simon and Schuster and Random House Listening Library.
Cyndi Victoria Chase’s junior year was supposed to be about fun and getting into college while desperately dodging the pitfalls of being awkward and painfully self-conscious. All of that was derailed when the massacre of two of her Alonis Academy classmates marked the beginning of a local epidemic. That did not sit well with Cyndi, who is a highly imaginative girl living in her own “Naturally Augmented Reality” where she can flawlessly detect when someone is lying and see people’s words come to life right in front of her eyes. She’ll discover that she’s up against a vicious trans-dimensional and intergalactic threat that has dropped chaos upon her life, school, and town. Cyndi is Cyndi and will always be compelled to fight back; her powerful foes better be prepared for a battle that will become historic throughout the galaxy.This book is part of the Marvelous World series published by Simon and Schuster and Random House Listening Library.

Why You’ll Love this book
The most important reason that I expect people will love this book is because of Cyndi Victoria Chase’s voice. Her voice is one of a highly unique and intelligent girl who seems to be nearly perfect from the outside looking in. However, that perfect image is far from being the truth. In fact, she considers herself a freak because she’s living in her own surreal world of “naturally augmented reality” where people’s words come to life in highly unique ways right in front of her eyes and she can magically tell when someone is lying to her. Those abilities are just the precursors of her developing super powers that will allow her to battle a threat that is from another galaxy and dimension and is killing her classmates.
I also believe readers will be drawn to this book because it manages to merge fantasy, sci-fi, action, and horror in a unique way. This book’s pages will give you the chance to travel to distant galaxies, cross dimensions, and fall in love while attending an elite international high school.
Lastly, the book’s website www.horriblymarvelous.com contains ongoing juicy diary entries that give lots of back story and expand upon the pages of the novel. There will also be entries where highly talented creative professionals are interwoven into the story and are asked 10 Horribly Marvelous questions. In short, if you love Cyndi’s world you don’t want to skip the website.
If I Knew Then What I Know Now About Writing
This question is very easy. I would not have based my first series on my life, family, and friends. Horribly Marvelous World is very personal to me. Since it is the case, I have been a bit over protective when it comes to relinquishing my rights so my series could be turned into films and TV shows.
