The Monsters Hiding In Your Closet, an anthology edited by Madeline Smoot
It’s amazing the kinds of monsters you can find in an old closet. Whether it’s a dragon in a hotel room or a Bigfoot baby in an abandoned mansion, the monsters hiding in the closets come in all shapes and sizes. In this collection of ten exciting tales, monsters help show us what it is to be human.
For decades, something has lurked in the swampy lakes of East Texas. When a TV show offers a million dollars to the person that can provide conclusive proof of the creature, Everdil, her brother, and two friends form a team to snap a picture of Bigfoot. But tracking a monster, especially one nobody’s been able to catch, proves trickier than Everdil expected. With each new adventure, Everdil seems to create more problems with her friends and family than she solves. In the end, she has to hope that her brave, foolish actions will ultimately make things right with everyone, including Bigfoot. This book will remind readers that hope and loyalty are traits that we all share, no matter our size.
