Blurb:

In the small town of Ashwood, monsters are as common as the next door neighbor. But they're not the kind you see in movies – they're real, and they can be dangerous. Ethan, a closeted gay teenager, has always been fascinated by monsters, but he's never had the courage to confront one.

That all changes when a particularly dangerous monster, known as the Shadow Beast, begins terrorizing the town. Ethan discovers that he has a hidden talent for capturing monsters, and he's tasked with the daunting task of catching the Shadow Beast.

But Ethan's secret isn't just his ability to capture monsters. He's also gay, and he's afraid of what people will think if they find out. In a world that's already prejudiced against monsters, Ethan knows that being different could make him a target.

With the safety of his town at stake, Ethan must decide whether to keep his secret or risk everything to help his community. Along the way, he'll learn about the importance of acceptance, self-discovery, and the power of being yourself.
