Remember when you were just a kid trying to figure out the adult world? Remember walking through that minefield, never knowing when you'd put your foot in the next one? Don't you wish you'd had an 800-pound gorilla on your side then? That's exactly what junior spacecraft mechanic Robin Plotnik is about to get.

Mac Gimbensky has been there, done that, and laughed it off. He's fussy, cranky, witty, clever, and the single best mechanic around. Fixing space fighters is his passion and his art. The last thing he needs is a cookie-cutter cadet nipping at his heels. But that's exactly what he's about to get.

Mac and Robin get off to a shaky start, but when they survive their first day together on the gigantic flagship Fist of Earth, they become fast friends. In a world like theirs, that's nothing short of miraculous, because Mac isn't human--he's that 800-pound gorilla you wish you'd had on your side.

Together, this unlikely duo maintains fighter craft for the all-women Barbarian Squadron, which constantly competes against the ship's other fighter jocks. Robin's also looking for romance, and he's far from sure that he knows what he's doing. Mac has already found it, but a universe of obstacles stands in his way. On top of this, their worst enemy, a by-the-book efficiency officer, seems determined to reorganize their whole lives out of existence.

Fresh and engaging, crammed with likable characters and science-fictional inventiveness, GREASE MONKEY is for adults who wish they "knew then what they know now," and also for young people who wish they had a guardian angel against the onslaught of the mysterious, treacherous, and ridiculous world of adults. On behalf of all of us, Mac and Robin defy the rules, strike their own path, and poke holes in the big balloon of life. Occasionally, they even get to enjoy it.
