My Zygotic Creation
by Joni Abilene
In My Zygotic Creation fifteen-year-old Frankie Weaver navigates life through secret-stalker love notes in the shape of origami animals, a mom in denial over looming health issues, a dad with a drinking problem, a step-mom with a needy problem, a crush with a boy who smells like bacon but has perfectly placed dimples, Syfy smashups like Calinomi and Sharktanic, cats, cats and more cats, and the ethereal world of Charlie Chaplin. It’s quirky and funny, but also serious. It’s real life: divorce, death threats at school, transgender issues, Facebook drama, and knowing that what you want isn’t always good for you in the end.
My Zygotic Creation is free today and (I think) tomorrow, and if you haven’t read it yet, please give it a try. Frankie is a funny girl. She’s based off women like Carol Burnett and Gilda Radner, whom I love madly. Also, if you enjoy silent movies and small towns and remember being fifteen and all sorts of awkward . . . you might just love this book. I truly enjoyed writing it.
