This is a comic YA novel set on a lighthouse in 1983, led by the deeply dysfunctional Principal Lighthousekeeper James Church. Along with his crew of social misfits, who are forced to share their Captain’s unhealthy obsession with Star Trek, Church embarks on a strange journey featuring a nasty gang of drug dealers, a surprising undersea discovery and a hamster called Steve.
1983. The Grange Lighthouse, just off the western coast of the UK. Nearest human habitation- New York. Principal Lighthousekeeper James Church settles down to his usual breakfast of whisky and cornflakes. Not together. He has some standards- particularly low ones that he constantly fails to live up to. Into his well-ordered universe comes a scientist to study the nearby puffin colony. This leads Church, and his crew of social misfits, who are forced to share their Captain’s unhealthy obsession with Star Trek, on a strange journey featuring a nasty gang of drug dealers, a surprising undersea discovery and a hamster called Steve.
This is a Young Adult novel with slightly more emphasis on the ‘Adult’ (14+) than previous books by Scott Pixello but not in the sense of being any more grown-up.
Think The Tempest meets Star Trek.
Please note, this is a novella, and priced accordingly.
Like Billy Crystal, Gromit and Boris Johnson’s hair , it may be a bit short but it’s still funny.
