Publisher's Summary

Cora Matthews, the principal's gloomy goth daughter, is not exactly popular Duke Meyer's type. Still, Duke finds himself inexplicably drawn to her dark eyes and mysterious manner. She makes it clear she doesn't return his admiration, but when a burst appendix lands Duke in the hospital, he and Cora will be forced to come together by the most unlikely intermediary: her eight-year-old brother, Jaime.

Duke learns Jaime has brain cancer and little chance of long-term survival. He admires the kid's plucky positivity and wild imagination and offers to write a story about Jaime's make-believe superheroes. So begins an epic tale - that of Ghostboy, Chameleon and the Duke of Graffiti - and a deep friendship between Duke and Jaime.

Despite their outward differences, Cora and Duke bond over their affection for Jaime, but unintended betrayal and Jaime's advancing disease threaten to derail their blossoming romance before it can truly take root.

Ghostboy, Chameleon & the Duke of Graffiti is a gorgeous debut novel that will resonate with the thoughtful fans of John Green's blockbuster The Fault in Our Stars.

    "Good story, not well executed"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was a bit of a struggle for me, but I ultimately enjoyed it. I bought this book on Kindle for my phone, and then I ended up purchasing the Audible add on because I couldn’t make myself read the book.

    The main character Duke is incredibly obnoxious. He’s just too “cool” and guy-ish. I had a hard time reading from his perspective. He develops a crush on the principal’s daughter, the goth girl, despite his better intentions. And then he finds himself involved with her younger brother, who is dying of brain cancer.

    The story was right up my alley. I enjoy books with illnesses and even death, but this book wasn’t executed as well as some others. Duke grows some because of his experience with Jaime, but it reminded me too much of the sub-plot in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants with Tibby and Bailey, but I enjoyed that story so much more.

    The romance was sweet, but it didn’t redeem the whole book for me.
