Book 1: Premonitions

Life hasn’t been good to Gracie. Her father left when she was 2, and her mother recently passed away. To top it all off, Gracie has premonitions.

Now a teenager, Gracie lives with her Aunt Shay and her cousin Diego. But she still feels like an outsider, like she doesn’t quite belong. And to make matters worse, her best friend Emily has gone missing. Emily is not the type to run away. Someone must have kidnapped her. Gracie has premonitions about Emily’s whereabouts; she sees a boat and a waterfall, and she knows that the kidnapper is someone Emily thought she could trust.

While the police investigate different leads, Gracie follows her visions. But going after Emily might not be such a safe idea. Because now the person who kidnapped Emily is after Gracie.

Book 2: Disappearance

When Gracie eats lunch at a seaside restaurant with her cousin, his girlfriend and a group of obnoxious jocks, one of the boys decides to dive off the restaurant's railing into the water. Gracie knows something bad will happen. But it’s not what she expects. The terrified boy finds a man’s dead body in the water. And so the murder investigation begins.

If discovering a dead body isn’t staggering enough, Gracie finds her father waiting at her house. How can he just show up after all these years? He left her and her mother and now he suddenly wants a relationship? But what if his sudden appearance is connected to the dead body?

  • Yeah, I love 'em! It's all I ever read.
  • Only if they have a good plot.
  • I'll read them every once and a while.
  • No way. I'm more of a Harry Potter fan.

Here's a quick rundown of the AU- Take Batman, then put it in Undertale, and make the underground Gotham.  But with a twist.  Papyrus- Batman, fights against pun usage in the city (XD)  Sans- Joker, the most famous for using puns, Papyrus' most famous enemy Undyne- Gordon, helps Batman fight against punners and leads the city cops Frisk- Robin, is neutral on puns but still helps Papyrus  Toriel- Harley Quinn, second most famous for using puns, and often tags along with Sans  Asgore- Bane, he doesn't use puns as much, but he does sell joke and pun books. Flowey- Riddler, he leaves riddles everywhere to throw people off or lead them into traps Alphys- Oracle, isn't related to Undyne here, and helps Frisk and Papyrus behind the scenes. Mettaton- Catwoman, sometimes helps sometimes doesn't. Neutral ground. Napstablook- mayor of the city, doesn't do much, lets everyone else take care of it since its their jobs.  Monsterkid- Killer Croc, he decided to dress up as a crocodile since he kinda looked like one, and picked up off of Sans and now tells puns.

Would you honestly expect the criminal's mother to take responsibility and pay for a lock? First, a mother taking responsibility for her child is not the same as a government taking responsibility for its' citizens.  Secondly, we border Mexico. They're our neighbors. It would be more like having no fence between you and your neighbor's house, and your neighbor's kids constantly trespassing and destroying your garden. If it's the case that you've suffered the damages, then your neighbor should rightfully pay for a fence to be built.  It's the same with the U.S.-Mexico border, but on a much grander scale. A tenth of the Mexican population has come into this country illegally, and it's costing us hundreds of billions every year. So, why is it wrong for Mexico to pay for a 20 billion dollar wall?
