San Diego Book Review
Being a gargoyle isn't easy. Tiffany wasn’t even born one, but now she has wings, and in the gargoyle world it means she’ll have to fight ghosts. A scary proposition for someone who was once one of the living, especially when all she wants to do is get home and see her parents again.
Enter the Hollow Mountain, a place caught somewhere between life and death, where Tiffany’s inner light—if she can learn to harness it—can bring her the power needed to face the monsters she thought only existed in her dreams.
Girlgoyle is a Manga-illustrated book for younger readers that tells the story of Tiffany Noboru, a fourteen-year-old girl who wakes in the magical realm of the Hollow Mountain, a gargoyle city dedicated to training young cadets in the art of hunting ghosts. As its newest, and most unexpected recruit, Tiffany is assigned to a retired ghost hunter named Franklin for mentoring and training. The problem with this is his only concern seems to be getting revenge on the ghost who brought Tiffany here in the first place. When the ghost manages to find a way into the Hollow Mountain and threatens the gargoyle world, it is up to Tiffany to stop the very thing that she couldn’t face before.
