Title:Monster High
Author:Harrison, Lisi
Publisher:Little Brown
Pages:272

From Goodreads: 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 RADs, but some call them monsters. So far, the “monster” community has kept a low profile in Salem, Oregon, but this year two new girls enroll at Merston High School, and the town will never be the same.

Created just fifteen days ago, Frankie Stein is psyched to trade her father’s lonely formaldehyde-smelling basement lab for parties and friends. But with a student body totally freaked out by rumors of monsters 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?

How totally voltage was this book? From the moment I opened the page and saw the making of Frankie Stein I was hooked on this cute MG monster mash by Lisi Harrison. The characters were so fun and well fleshed out (get the pun? Fleshed Out haha. I know I kill myself…) and the background info on the monsters and their famous grandparents is so amazing.

Monster High is also a tale of hiding who you are if you are a bit different. A tale of Frankie struggling to be who she is, everyone is going green so why can’t she show her true mint green color to the world? I cannot wait to see what Frankie and the crew get up to in the next book.

It’s almost that fun spooky time of year that we all love so well. Buy your tween a copy of Monster High for Halloween and read it yourself too. Laugh out loud funny!

Monster High Fright Song!
