Publisher's Summary

Francis is unhappy. Francis is picked on. Francis doesn't have a life, a hope, a chance. Francis was human once, but that's behind him. Now he's an eight-foot-tall locust, and all of Calliphora, Nevada, will shudder to hear him sing.

Incredible!!!

Let's take "The Metamorphosis" by Kafka, reimagine it an angry teenager and add a whole lot of detail.
I really enjoyed this story!
