A GIRL CALLED MONSTER - A modern day Frankenstein retelling by Paige Lavoie - When you've only existed for days, how do you discover who you are?
From the back cover,
"Where she came from there were no windows. The sounds of buzzing equipment and the doctor's shouting rang through her ears daily. It was too uncomfortable to call home and too familiar not to be. Like it or not, she was an experiment.
Filled with childlike wonder and innocence, she took pleasure in stories, imagining what it would be like to live in those pages. A longing growing deep inside her.
She knew she'd never have that life... Not in the lab. Not with them studying her every move. So she decided to do something terrifying.
What people are saying,
"This was a fascinating revival of a Frankenstein story, with a more inspiring and uplifting tale on what it really means to live. I enjoyed seeing her come into her own, meet new people who inspire her to find herself, and all of the twist and turns she takes in order to get there. This is a great read whether you want to see a fresh take on an old classic, or just an inspiring tale on living your best life."
"Monnie awakes into a strange world inhabited by two even stranger men, The Doctor and Igor. As she learns how to move her body, talk, and read, she is baffled by who to trust. Even more enigmatic is the forbidden door...what could possibly be behind it?? When Monnie finally breaks into the real world she is amazed by all the sites, sounds, and menu options (hello sides!). She develops a wonderful group of friends but is still haunted by the man who created her. Will she ever be able to let go of her scary beginnings and find true happiness? A Girl Called Monster is a journey of self discovery and what it means to have genuine life fulfillment--an insightful, powerful read in a fun, laugh-out-loud story!"
"Reading A Girl Called Monster was a great way to start off the new year! The characters were intriguing and came to life on the page. The story was engaging and kept my attention captivated, always wanting to know what was going to happen next. There were some great life lessons here about kindness shown to those who don't fit the standard mold, dealing with deception and not-so-great intentions, bravery and love. Good read!"
"This is, no exaggeration, one of the best books I've read recently. Both whimsical and thought-provoking, "A Girl Called Monster" puts a fresh spin on the classic Frankenstein story by turning it into a breathtaking, modern fairy tale. I adored it from start to finish and didn't want to leave this world or the incredibly written characters that inhabit it. Seriously, if you don't read anything else this year, read this book."
"An absolutely fun and refreshing take on a classic monster story with lots of girl power! This novel is perfect for young adults and adults alike with beautifully written characters and plenty of valuable life lessons involving the challenges we are faced with to overcome while finding our place in the world. You will fall in love with every page, feel every emotion, and wont want to put it down!"
