Overview

Henry Melton, who brought you the award-winning Emperor Dad, crafts a tale of invasive nanobots with an alien agenda in the dark towering redwood forests of far northern California. High school senior Deena Brooke struggled to make sense of the impossible changes to her body, grateful for the interest Luther Jennings had in her puzzling insights and quirky urges, until she discovered that he was hiding a deadly secret of his own. What could she do about this unseen influence that was changing her into something else, and was Luther helping her or dragging her into his criminal scam?

Editorial Reviews

Veronica Huerta
Extreme Makeover is a heck of a lot more than just the changes Deena Brooke is going through. This tale has all the makings of movie on the big screen. There's little aliens, mobsters, car chases and no one is really who they pretend to be. The mini romantic moments between Luther and Deena are just perfect. They make each other want to lose control when they get together on their road trip. It’s true what they; guys love to make good girls go bad.

I've recently read the #1 best-selling YA novel, and Henry's is much better written. It's also better paced and has a better story and better-realized characters. Trust me....You'll notice I've been pretty vague about the plot elements. That's so you can discover them for yourself. The book reads quickly, and it's a lot of fun. Don't let any prejudice against self-publishing keep your from having a good time with it.

Meet the Author

Henry Melton is often on the road with his wife Mary Ann, a nature photographer and frequently captivated by the places he visits. This has inspired his latest series of novels; Small Towns, Big Ideas. Formerly a programmer specializing in database work and web design, he pioneered Internet use for a Fortune 500 company until the tech bubble collapse. In the early days of home computers, he created one of the earliest commercial word processing programs, and built his own computers back when that meant wiring the chips together by hand to his own schematics. Henry's short fiction has been published in many magazines and anthologies, most frequently in ANALOG. Catacomb, published in DRAGON magazine, is considered a classic, and by the continuing fan mail twenty years later, a formative influence among modern computer gaming programmers. Many of these are available for free on his website. Other than an occasional short story, most of his time is spent writing science fiction YA novels. Currently being published by Wire Rim Books are the Small Towns, Big Ideas series of books, where high school aged heroes of the here and now are confronted with classic science fiction themes. The first, Emperor Dad, was the winner of the 2008 Darrell Award for Best Novel. Sharing what he’s learned about the art, craft, and business of writing has been an on-going part of his life, from grade school readings to teaching formal classes and veranda coaching for the students of George Benson Christian College in Zambia during his 2007 trip to Africa.
