Misfit Toys In Love

By Joe Mikolay

General fiction, Romance, Young adult | Paperback, eBook


Misfit Toys In Love is a romantic-comedy about a pair of small town misfits searching for a place to belong, and finding it with each other. It’s Christmastime in suburban New Jersey, where Ben Mitchell- a good kid with geeky tendencies- has spent the past seven years counting the days until he can move onto college and reinvent himself. Syd Raines spends her time with the Goth crowd, the closest thing she has found to kindred spirits, though mostly on a superficial level. The only thing that Ben and Syd seem to have in common is the daily abuse they take from the High School Power Elite. That is, until they both flunk a Chemistry test, and are given a choice between failing the class, or working on the Decorating Committee for the Winter Dance. Reluctantly, they both choose the latter, and are forced into an uneasy partnership that will take two outsiders further away from where they’re used to being, but perhaps closer to where they’re meant to be. But when their mistreatment at the hands of the In-Crowd goes too far, utterly humiliating them and their friends, Ben and Syd crack a scheme to give them a jolly dose of their own medicine. Can their plan work? Can they find a way to deal with each other, and make something out of their complicated, burgeoning friendship? And in a season of miracles, can they find a way to prove that even misfits can find a place to fit in?
