A satirical spin on young adult supernatural romance, this is the story of Swampy, a horrifying monster of the deep who is unleashed on the town of Bluford Springs when a brand new shopping mall is built on top of the swamp land he calls home. It is the story of Lindsay Morpletopple, a girl with a disturbing fetish for violence whose twisted pangs of desire cause her to fall for Swampy, even though he murders several of her closest friends at their initial meeting. It is the story of Teddy Bigshartz, a nerdy high school junior who is so in love with Lindsay that he befriends Swampy and sneaks him into B.S.H.S. as thinly disguised student Seth Manster, hoping to love her vicariously through her chosen monster mate. (It is also the story of a vampire fraternity's battle with crystal meth dealers, a lovelorn witch's lonely trip to the moon in the late 1960s, and MORE!) Swampy Goes to Prom is a tale of romance and psychological trauma and madcap slapstick and bravery and a climactic prom showdown involving turd demons from hell.
