"We are positively euphoric about the #1 bestselling success of “The Land of Stories” and were already looking forward to its sequel next year. So we are thrilled to have a new young adult novel from him as well. Chris is a remarkable writing talent, and “Struck By Lightning” is a story that will entertain, enlighten, and deeply affect not only his millions of fans, but every person who has experienced the sometimes painful, sometimes funny alienation and confusion of high school."
