Kill the Dragon, Get the Girl is a wild and snaky book written for the whole family. It's full of fire and brimstone and pepperoni pizza.
Lacy is the sole survivor of a freak accident that took eleven of her friends and the use of her legs. It left her with night terrors, and though no one will say it to her face, everybody thinks she might have gone a little crazy. Lacy's younger brother Tommy has no such problems, although having the largest vocabulary in your class and being constantly preoccupied with medieval weaponry comes with its own set of difficulties. But when Lacy and Tommy and their friend Wayne (big belt buckle, big hat, wishes he could do two hundred pull ups) are forced to confront a suspicious recluse named Verdell Graham, things go from bad to worse. The kids are sucked into an adventure that challenges their perception of reality and demands that they face what they fear most, alone.

What People Are Saying:
"I'm a Gramma, and I couldn't put it down. I started reading it out loud to myself to get a feel for how my kids would read it to their kids, but when I couldn't wait to see what would happen next I started just reading it for myself. It's that good." -Bonnie
"Like J K Rowling and N D Wilson, it is everything I love in teen novels: all-at-a-gulp breathless, poetic prose, unexpected. And more -the story is unapologeticly cross shaped without cheese." -Donald
"Great read aloud with the the kids!" -Michael
