Aside from sharing a few passing references to [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} the same work]], has nothing to do with the webcomic Webcomic/STuCK.

[[http://bit.ly/stuckwattpad readable here]]) is about Tre and the Crew as they go up against the security guards at the mall, amongst other things like deadly laser tag. Has its own page.
* Stuck at the Threshold (upcoming) is, to put it simply, The Crew vs. Zombies. Companies with shady business practices and mad scientists are also part of the episode's equation.
* Stuck at the Wheel focuses on the Crew after they get framed for a million-dollar bank heist. Plastic swords of death and eldritch abominations fed by negative emotions also show up.
* Sparks: An alternate universe story set after Wheel. While Tre's on vacation the Crew goes into a rift in reality and come out with superpowers. Then the rift starts making stuff go awry in Greyson once Tre comes back, so it's up to them all to fix out before their time runs out.

Stuck is a planned episodic novel by Lyle Terry (aka the troper @/{{Tre}}). The story focuses on a 13-year-old guy, also named Tre, and his posse of friends (aka The Crew) as they grow up in a sprawling metropolis called Greyson City, a place known for being rather [[CityOfAdventure strange]] in comparison to other cities like it.

Okay, that's not even half of it.

The books also have crazed night guards, insane teenagers, odd teachers, blossoming teenage love, root beer that has, ahem, [[DrunkOnMalts interesting effects]], karate-kicking young ladies and a bit of coming-of-age sprinkled in just for fun.

The series has three planned entries:

* ''Literature/StuckAtTheGalleria'', in which Tre gets himself stuck in a mall, meets The Crew, and gets hassled by the rent-a-cop there named Carl Weisberger (a.k.a. Cow),
* ''Stuck at School'', in which Tre and The Crew get themselves into hot water with the start of their high school years,
* and ''Stuck at the Wheel'', in which The Crew [[spoiler: become fugitives.]]

to:

Tre Listman is a generally normal teenager with a tendency to daydream and a hidden sense of wit laid under an awkward exterior. Or at least, he ''was'' generally normal. But then after an accident involving root beer and a shopping cart, he gets trapped inside the Westland Galleria Mall amidst the chaos between a rowdy group of other kids and a team of rent-a-cops that take their jobs a bit too seriously. What follows is a night full of strange inner monologues, awkward teen romances, giant robots, mobsters and people in duck costumes. [[StuckAtTheGalleria And that's just Episode One of this strange tale from Greyson City.]]

* BloodlessCarnage: Played straight in Episode One, where most of the violence is either performed with Nerf guns or is against robots/holograms. [[spoiler:Subverted, however, in Episode Three, where things get a bit messier, but not overly so.]]
