The Lovereading4Kids comment

Can a town be full of badness? When Ewan is moved there against his will he can feel the force of something coming. Something unknown but something to be feared. May knows it too, and Andrew. Will anyone believe the children and will these three very different teenagers be able to do anything to save the town from its terrible fate? A debut novel with a supernatural touch from an author with a very vivid imagination.

Synopsis

The Badness of Ballydog by Garrett Carr

Something is coming ...something big.

May knows it, but no one will listen to her. She's an outcast due to her odd ways and freakish ability with animals.

Andrew knows it, but he has his position as gang leader to maintain.

Ewan knows it, but what can he do? The sea creature is the biggest living thing on the face of the earth. And it won't stop until it has destroyed Ballydog.

Can three teenagers save the baddest town in the world from its fate? And is it even worth saving?

He has worked as a cook, a fruit-picker, a brickie, a web-developer, but mainly as an
