Cannon Cove, Oregon has nothing going for it except that once upon a time, long ago, a movie that was destined to become a kids’ cult classic was filmed there. You might have heard of it: The Gloomies*. You know that Gloomies never say die, right? Too bad the town never lived by that motto.
In Misfit City #1 we watch as local kids find a real adventure in their little hometown.
When a local resident dies and leaves a strange package to a local museum, no one expected to find anything of real value. But possibly the last thing Wilder and her friends expected to see was an honest to goodness treasure map! But someone else seems to be in the know and they are not wanting to share with our curious gang. In fact, the mysterious person is willing to hurt others to get what they want!
Worthy of note: this is co-written by Kiwi Smith who wrote 10 Things I Hate About You and Legally Blonde!
*It’s called The Gloomies because NO ONE wants to get sued here, I bet!
Nothing’s happened in Wilder’s hometown since they filmed that cult kids’ adventure movie there in the 80s…but that’s ancient history. Until one day, she and her friends come upon a centuries-old pirate map drawn by someone named Black Mary…and find out there might be some REAL adventure in their tiny town after all!
