I really enjoyed Monster High. It was such a fun read. I picked it up from the library, and like most books I get from the library, I wish I bought it. If you haven’t read it yet, you should pick it up. It wont take you long to read.

Note: This is an older review. So I don’t feel like I can get more into what I liked and disliked about it. Maybe someday I will re-read Monster High and do another review. Better reviews (hopefully) in the future. ( )

When Melody Carver and her family move to Salem, Oregon, Melody believes that she has a fresh start and is able to finally NOT stand out. With her "camel hump" of a nose beautified thanks to her dad being a plastic surgeon, the other students at Melody's new school, Merston High, start to finally take interest in her. Not only that, but some royally jealous teen queens develop some jealousy, as well. And on top of that, Melody has been hearing about monster sightings...

Frankie Stein is the literal new girl. Being only 15 days old, Frankie is eager to visit the outside world and make some friends. But after a horrible accident, proving that Frankie is definitely no normal teenager, urges her to hide her identity and play it cool such as the other RAD's. When Frankie finally decides to take a stand for all her kind, things get out of control, and some people lose their heads.

This book is amazing. Not only can I relate to the students at Merston High, but I can almost imagine myself being one of them. For almost half of my life I was treated as an outcast, so I felt pretty proud of the RAD's for deciding to take action and stand up for themselves. Melody is my favorite character. Hoodies, jeans and Converse happen to be just my style, and we've both got quite an attitude when we need it. Candace absolutley cracks me up and her jokes always brighten my day. ( )

The Good: This book has an awesome premise and carries it out very well. It's got a decent message hidden underneath its classic horror character story line.

The Bad: Cutesy words like "Normies" quickly drove me insane. The "kids" do a version of basic teen rebellion, thinking they know better than their parents. It's standard fare that will likely delight a middle grade to early young adult crowd, and immediately turn older readers off. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031609918X, Hardcover)

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.

The monster community has kept a low profile at the local high school, but when two new girls enroll, 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 prom.

But with a student body totally freaked out by rumors of monsters stalking the halls, Frankie learns that high school can be rough for a chic freak like her. She thinks she finds a friend in fellow new student Melody Carver-but can a "normie" be trusted with her big secret?
