Meddling Kids is a fictional story by Edgar Cantero. Inspired by Scooby-Doo, the story follows Andy, Nate, Kerri, and their pet dog as they revisit an unsolved mystery that has resulted in childhood trauma. 1the book ties in elements of the supernatural, immortal beings, and monsters. The majority of the story takes place in Blyton Hills, a deteriorating town in Oregon, and former sanctuary now tainted by fear.
Meddling Kids has a stunning narrative on the effects childhood trauma have on adult life. It showcases facing the event head-on, and believable growth in all of its characters.
The story has a healthy and organic depiction of an LGBT relationship. The development ties in naturally with the rest of the story, and unites two important characters the reader roots for.
I enjoyed Meddling Kids immensely. The story was captivating and had impeccable comedic timing. It flowed naturally and was filled with exciting twists. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed Scooby-Doo as a kid, has a taste for the supernatural, or is just looking for a fascinating read.
