Me and Marvin Gardens
By: Amy King
Obe Devlin has problems. His family’s farmland has been taken over by developers. His best friend Tommy has abandoned him. And he keeps getting nosebleeds.
One day, he sees a creature that looks kind of like a large dog. And as he watches it, he realizes it eats plastic. Only plastic. The animal–Marvin Gardens–becomes Obe’s best friend and biggest secret. But to keep him safe, Obe must make a decision that might change everything.
