A raw, gripping debut novel about overcoming the fear of the world. Orville McFadden’s fantastic world of trolls, magic, and giant spiders is swiftly shattered with the murders of his sister and grandmother. Internal demons creep in and Orville begins to walk along a path of fear-fear of the world, fear of losing his loved ones, fear of failure. After a failed baseball career, a failed acting career, and a failed marriage, Orville hits rock bottom. He finds himself poised to jump from the Ballard Bridge in Seattle-it’s at this moment, Orville must decide in the power of choice: to lead a life of failure or to choose a life worth living.
