Go back 15 years and relive the anticipation of #PrequelFever. Opening chapter tweeting out from November 17 to December 16, 2015, followed by a physical and Amazon release, with a limited number of free copies hidden in plain sight in cities across Canada. The countdown to #Adultescence begins now.
“You know, children consume things. Adults produce them. You went to film school. When are you going to stop being a critic and start making your own stuff?”
Wise female words to wound the heart of any would-be screenwriter. Natheny Baruwal (26) is the ultimate disgruntled fan, busy revenging himself on famed movie director Frank Castle for his worse-than-horrible prequel. But to escape the Master’s influence, he must be bested, outdone, defeated on his own turf.
Unfortunately, Nathe is also locked in a legal battle with his mother over her half-renovated McMansion and the ugly divorce it triggered. But the women in his life have more to teach him than he’s ready to be taught. And as he may yet learn, revenge has a way of biting back.
Is he really writing that screenplay? Or is it, like the house itself, merely a façade that’s forever threatening to collapse? Find out as his story converges with those of four friends, all groping toward their own 21st-century adulthoods, in this hilarious and moving tale of maturity delayed until it’s almost too late.
