Matty explores a famed dinosaur excavation site, but realizes nothing comes easy when adventure abounds and trouble follows
In “Botheration Part One: The Missing Link, author Vito Di Barone tells the story of the high school nerdish Matty who sets out to stop a cyber-terrorist plot. Di Barone now marks Matty Weber’s return with the release of its follow-up, “Botheration Part Two: Waves of Dinosaurs” (published by Archway Publishing) in which Matty explores a famed dinosaur excavation site but realizes nothing comes easy when adventure abounds, and trouble follows.
When 17-year-old Matty agrees to escort Freddie Carter to Dinosaur National Monument in eastern Utah on a school trip, he encounters more than a quiet intellectual visit. They were supposed to be there to see one of the country’s best dinosaur excavation sites, but instead, Matty immediately finds himself saving a young girl from New Zealand who is a paleontology major.
Amidst the chaos, Matty nearly misses his chance to score points with his dream girl Samantha Carter. He realizes that Freddie is more than a handful. Along the way, he fights the raging waters of the Green River and intellectually duels with a general and a Santa Claus look-alike as well as stories that tax even Matty’s intelligence. Matty finds himself lost in underground tunnels eventually wandering through waves of dinosaurs, before reuniting with Samantha and friends.
Picking up where Matty and his friends left off in the Botheration series, Matty gets into all sorts of trouble on what was supposed to be just another ordinary day. Most importantly, though, he continues his quest to discover more about trust, develop new interpersonal skills, and be more social.
“This story will continue to lead the readers down roads of adventure not normally broached by other stories. It combines action with self-talk, confidence with doubt, yet it allows the reality of the situation to dictate how it ends,” Di Barone says. When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, he answers, “That they want to learn to have the hunger to learn and read more of Matty’s adventures.”
