Gork, the Teenage Dragon by Gabe Hudson

Gork's earliest memories are being raised by his spaceship computer on earth.  When he's three, his grandfather comes down to pick him up and take him to the planet they live on.  He's going to teach him how to be a dragon...

Knopf and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 11th.

It's hard to be respected when your horns are only two inches tall and you've got a gentle heart.  His stats don't look good in the mean categories and they call him Weak Sauce.  His overall rating is Snacklicious.  He has to work hard to stay alive.  And now it's mating season.

He has his heart set on mating with the prettiest dragon but the dragon that runs the school is her father and he hates him and has forbidden it.  Nevertheless, Gork persists.  But his grandfather is messing with him and things start happening to his body.

Between body changes in Gork, his grandfather working with a mind transfer machine, and his goal of getting of his girl, life gets real busy.  He's fighting, competing, and trying to heal all at the same time.  Then he finds himself back on earth...

His grandfather was no friend of his.  It's a good thing he listened to the professor in his class.  His knowledge is what saves Gork.

The story is busy and intriguing.  I had no idea where this tale was going.  I enjoyed the ending, too.  Read it; it'll keep your attention.
