From back of book: Earth has survived alien invasions, attacks by hordes of mutants, and the ravages of ancient beast brought back to life. Now we're in the blissful future...for most.
J!m, the son of the alien who nearly destroyed the planet, is a brooding, megacephalic rebel with an enormous forehead and exceptionally oily skin. ALong with Johnny, a radioactive biker ape, and Jelly, a gelatinous mass passing as a fat kid, J!m navigates a particularly unpleasant adolescence in which he really is as alienated as he feels, the world might actually be out to get him, and true love is complicated by misunderstanding and incompatible parts. As harmless school antics escalate into explosive events with tragic consequences, J!m makes a discovery that will alter the course of civilization, though it may help his dating life.
Replete with all the beach parties, dances, fistfights, and hotrod races of classic teen drama--and packed with famous film monster cameos--Go, Mutants! is fun strapped to an atomic rocket--and Doyle's deadpan delivery and razor-sharp wit will have you laughing out loud before he even starts the ignition sequence.
