He's not your typical teenager: sure, Ethan has crushes on girls and he wants to be popular, but he also has weird parents, gargoyles living in his basement and daily visitations from a dead, blood-covered boy. In JV Harlee's Gargoyle Tears, an earnest teen gothic plagued by hackneyed prose (""by the dull look in her beautiful eyes, Ethan knew that her heart just wasn't into cheerleading"") and language misdemeanors (rumors, for instance, is spelled ""roomers""), Ethan must stand up to mean jocks and save the endangered gargoyles, who await their savior in the form of Ethan's unborn sister.
