Synopsis

Koda Okita is a high school student in modern day Japan who isn't very popular. He suffers from narcolepsy and has to wear a watermelon sized helmet to protect his head in case he falls. But Koda couldn't care less about his low social standing. He is content with taking long bike rides and hanging out in the convenience store parking lot with his school dropout friend, Haru. But when a rash of puzzling deaths sweeps his school, Koda discovers that his narcoleptic naps allow him to steal the thoughts of nearby supernatural beings. He learns that his small town is under threat from a ruthless mountain demon that is hell bent on vengeance. With the help of a mysterious and not to mention very cute classmate, Koda must find a way to take down this demon. But his unstable and overwhelming new abilities seem to have a mind of their own...The Monster on the Road Is Me is a darkly comic debut novel about the unexpected strength we find when we are tested beyond our limits.
