Raised on the mean streets and back lots of Hollywood by a Yoda-look-alike grandfather, award-winning author, Cody Kennedy, doesn’t conform, doesn’t fit in, is epic awkward, and lives to perfect a deep-seated oppositional defiance disorder. In a constant state of fascination with the trivial, Cody contemplates such weighty questions as: If time and space are curved, then where do all the straight people come from? When not writing, Cody can be found taming waves on western shores, pondering the nutritional value of sunsets, appreciating the much maligned dandelion, unhooking guide ropes from stanchions, and marveling at all things ordinary.

It’s important to me that I give people my honest thoughts because, as a teen, other teens look to my reviews to see if it’s a book they might like to read; and parents look to see if it is a good book for their kids to read.

*DIES LAUGHING* I can't believe you tried a Twinkie because of Omorphi, Serith!!! I'm glad the story broadened your horizons, though I must admit, I had hoped that you'd take better things away from the story. I'll accept the award. I don't mind the blame. :D LMAO!

Serith Fun fact: I just tried my very first twinkie because of the amusing "twink" conversation between Michael, Jake and Christy.

Not so fun fact: It’s slowly ruining my life. Ignorance was bliss but now I’m an addict of this sugary cake and it’s all your fault. (...this roughly translates to: thank you for the introduction / reminding me of my strange bucket list that includes trying abstract deserts *snicker*snort*)
