Yellow Stringer, Volume 1: Fake News Provocateurs (Saturday AM TANKS / Yellow Stringer #1) (Paperback)
Monsters are fake news, right? That’s what many of the readers of the tabloid rag the Yellow Stringer think, but the truth is more frightening than anyone could possibly know.
With front page stories like the demon baby born in an Iowa hospital or the ghost that mysteriously haunts cheerleaders from a small West Virginia town, most people assume that the articles in this national newspaper are sensationalist entertainment for bored shoppers waiting at checkout. However, these stories are real, and the journalists who report on them get the scoop despite the danger they find themselves in.
Promising Columbia Journalism School graduate Naomi and her partner, ex-cop Tony, two journalists who have suffered traumatic events at the hands of monsters, now dedicate their lives to reporting true monster crime. While they come from two different backgrounds with very different methods to investigate the truth, they are committed to unearthing the world of the supernatural. Even if no one in the world ever believes them, this dynamic team will stop at nothing to reveal the truth!
In this volume, our bickering yet terrific duo have to deal with a unique version of the headless horseman, the undead, cursed artifacts, and more! Naomi and Tony may have seen it all, but when cases start to link up to trauma that only they have experienced, they’re going to stop at nothing to expose the truth.
Yellow Stringer is rated OT for Older Teen, recommended for ages 16 and up.
