She Kills Monsters
She Kills Monsters is the story of Agnes Evans who, after the death of her teenage sister, Tilly, discovers Tilly’s Dungeons and Dragons module, or map, for a Dungeons and Dragons adventure that Tilly created. She decides to play the game and embarks on an epic, comedic journey of discovery and action-filled fantasy role playing in the imaginary story that Tilly created as a world of wish fulfillment. The imaginary monsters Tilly battles in the D&D world are metaphors for the true monsters of her high school world: bigotry, bullying, gender and sexual orientation discrimination, fear, indifference, and intolerance. Through this journey, Agnes discovers the true soul of her sister, Tilly (The Lost Soul of Athens), as well as the geek and warrior within herself.
