A coming of age sort-of-not-really story about a boy, his brother, the girl he likes, aliens, demons, mad scientists, mummies, ninjas, witches and goths. Not in that order.
Laugh and cry with/at Matchu, a jaded, cynical, “sulking yellow thing” who is perpetually at the mercy of his own bad luck. Matchu peruses the girl of his dreams, the cheerful, golden-haired Amber, who he can’t even get near without something bad happening to him. Along for the bumpy ride are his eccentric older brother Doug (“Chu”) and Amber’s loony best friend Famine, along with a cast of colorfully ridiculous characters who aren’t all there.
Can Matchu overcome his misfortune and win the heart of the lovely Amber?
Nope. Of course not.
