Monster High by Lisi Harrison

Monster HighName of Publisher:Poppy

Published:September 2010

Number of Pages: 255


From Lisi Harrison, the New York Times bestselling author of The Clique and Alphas, comes a new series with a fresh twist on high school, romance, and the horrors of trying to fit in.

They prefer to call themselves RAD (Regular Attribute Dodgers), but some call them monsters. So far, the "monster" community has kept a low profile in Salem, but this year two new girls enroll at Master High School, and the town will never be the same.

Created just fifteen days ago, Frankie Stein is psyched to trade her father's formaldehyde-smelling basement lab for parties and cheerleading. But with a student body totally freaked out by rumors of monsters who might be stalking the halls, Frankie finds that life in the "normi" world can be rough for a chic freak like her.

She thinks she finds a friend in fellow new student Melody Carver--but can a normi be trusted with her big secret?


Of course Lisi Harrison astounds me again-but not quite as much. I love the way that she twists the basic classic of Frankenstein into a teenage drama. The only bit that I thought was a bit cliched was the characters, who were somewhat like mini-imitations of Massie and her Pretty Committee. Cleo was a little bit too much like Massie,etc.

Frankie Stein is a 15 day old girl who looks fifteen years old. She has lime-green skin and has to wear make-up concealer to hide it. But Frankie hates it and finally finds a way to fit in with a super tight clique of girls. Soon after, she finds out that they're monsters, too-or RADs. Everything's great...until certain things that could mean disaster happen.

Melody Carver is the "newbie" in the school, and becomes friends with Bekka, a girl who so strict on the rule "friend's first" that she even has Melody sign a contract. But before Melody knows it, she's caught up in a problem that she'll wish she'd never been in-one where her boyfriend's double personality is caught in between loyalty-and love.

Amazing and magical, this book is one to-read.
