When most teenagers turn sixteen they receive a car or a watch from their family but one Florida teen learns a family secret. Garritt wakes on his sixteenth birthday to find himself as a leprechaun. Garritt must go live with family in Ireland to learn what it means to be a leprechaun. While in Ireland, he makes new friends but an evil plot against the leprechauns is revealed, sadly only Garritt and his friends can stop it.
Being a teenager is hard but being a teenage leprechaun is even harder.
How did you find out about being a leprechaun?
I woke up like this!
Sorry I hear girls say that a lot and never thought that was fun to say until now.
Are you sure you’re a leprechaun or are you crazy?
I think everyone is a bit crazy, but no my family is very convincing when they turn to the size of Barbie and G.I. Joe.
Have you ever used your leprechaun abilities for anything bad?
Ummm… I don’t think so, but then again I’m sixteen so what I think is okay you might disagree. I can say sneaking out at night, mom hates that, says I abuse my abilities.
Were you scared going to Ireland?
I was scared more of being a leprechaun, not being able to control my size; that is scary. Trying to use an airplane toilet and go to G.I. Joe size, I thought I would fall in!
Dating is confusing to everyone, is it easier as a leprechaun?
Let’s see, I’m in love with my best friend and she’s just my best friend. What does that say?
What is school like now?
Not sure, I got a bit busy with some issues, but class sizes were small only leprechauns were attending it compared to all those living in the area.
Any future goals?
My Granda wants me to be next clan leader, I’m not sure if I’m ready but you did say future.
