Ghostboy, Chameleon & the Duke of Graffiti

2015 Foreword Reviews INDIEFAB Book of the Year
Award Finalist!



Have you ever dreamt of becoming a superhero? Jaime did. He had big dreams, bigger than most eight-year-olds, but a small amount of time to make them true. 

Cora Matthews, the principal’s gloomy goth daughter, is not exactly popular Duke Meyer’s type. Still, Duke finds himself inexplicably drawn to her dark eyes and mysterious manner. She makes it clear she doesn’t return his admiration, but when a burst appendix lands Duke in the hospital, he and Cora will be forced to come together by the most unlikely intermediary: her eight-year-old brother, Jaime.

Duke learns Jaime has brain cancer and little chance of long-term survival. He admires the kid’s plucky positivity and wild imagination and offers to write a story about Jaime’s make-believe superheroes. So begins an epic tale—that of Ghostboy, Chameleon and the Duke of Graffiti—and a deep friendship between Duke and Jaime.

Despite their outward differences, Cora and Duke bond over their affection for Jaime, but unintended betrayal and Jaime’s advancing disease threaten to derail their blossoming romance before it can truly take root.

Ghostboy, Chameleon & the Duke of Graffiti is a gorgeous debut novel that will resonate with the thoughtful fans of John Green’s blockbuster The Fault in Our Stars.

  1. I read this book last year and it’s definitely one that has stuck with me. I was just thinking about it recently and thinking how it would make a great movie. And Jacob Tremblay would be a PERFECT Jaime. This book has all the makings for a great film. There’s no reason why Olivia can’t have a John Greene type film success with Ghostboy, Chameleon and Duke of Graffiti.

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was
    curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not
    100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
