Saturday Morning Mind Control by Ben Arzate
What really killed Saturday morning cartoons?
For Caleb, dealing with puberty and all the changes that come with the raging hormones is confusing enough without also living in an America still reeling from the tragedy of 9/11. When his young cousin attacks him with a knife, seemingly without provocation, it turns his whole life upside down. Who would believe a middle school boy that something strange came from the TV that Saturday morning and made it happen?
Saturday Morning Mind Control is a mix of horror, mystery, and satire combined with a twisted coming-of-age tale in an America entering the new millennium.
Saturday Morning Mind Control
This was a great shorter read. The twin towers were just attacked, the country is in a panic. As everyone is glued to their tvs to either distract themselves or gain insight on the recent attacks, children are committing atrocities of their own. With a seemingly blink of the eye, they commit gruesome acts of violence all through the surrounding area where our story takes place. It’s up to our main character to get to the bottom of things. What ensues from there is non stop action! A fun ride and I hope to read more from Arzate!
