Struck by Lightning

The Carson Phillips Journal

By Chris Colfer
Read by Chris Colfer

  • Downloadable audio file
  • £P.O.R.

A hilariously cynical look at high school from Chris Colfer, star of TV's Glee, and based on the feature film of the same name.

Struck by Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal follows the story of outcast high school senior Carson Phillips who blackmails the most popular students into contributing to his literary journal to bolster his college application; his goal in life is to get into Northwestern and eventually become the editor of The New Yorker.

At once laugh-out-loud funny, deliciously dark, and remarkably smart, Struck by Lightning unearths the dirt that lies just below the surface of high school.

The major motion picture Struck by Lightning features Colfer's own original screenplay and stars Allison Janney, Christina Hendricks, Dermot Mulroney, and Colfer in leading roles.

If the quest is successful, the King of Northumberland just might help Jack return to the twenty-first century. But if they fail, Spiggot and Jack will be at the mercy of the evil wizard Mallmoc - and that's a fate far, far worse than being stranded in a faerie realm forever.The Knights of Liofwende concludes with: 3.
