ABOUT THE BOOK:
Philip Skyler learned early in his life that his face would get him into trouble and there was nothing he could do about it. Born with an extreme facial deformity, Philip became an easy target for stares, sneers, and bullying.
Though medical scientists named his condition Van der Woude syndrome, his classmates, especially the bullies, just called him "Monkeyface". The Monkeyface Chronicles is his sweet story of revenge.
Philip's aphorism-toting grandfather used to say, "Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect," and Philip Skyler keeps that advice with him as he embarks on a life journey of payback that has everything to do with cause and effect. Philip's quest leads him through the most circumstances, where no one is really who they seem to be.
While riding his father's motorcycle to Toronto to escape the dregs of hid fading, too-small hometown, Philip has a life-changing experience that transforms him into the hero he never imagined he could be.
