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?


My Thoughts:
Going in, I expected this series to be more like the tv specials and wasn't, but that's perfectly fine. It was a little superficial, yes, but I am obsessed with these dolls, so I really don't have an issue with it.

The book is told from two point of views: Frankie and Melody. Frankie is the granddaughter of Frankenstein and Melody is a normie (who had undergone surgery to help her breathe better that had made her more attractive). Both girls are new to Merston High School.

I liked both of their perspectives. Frankie is so cute and sweet and naive. Melody is more observant and hesitant to trust others. Both were easy to read and easy to connect with.

I cannot wait to read the others. :)
