Fovea Munson is nobody's Igor.
True, her parents own a cadaver lab where they perform surgeries on dead bodies. And yes, that makes her gross by association, at least according to everyone in seventh grade. And sure, Fovea's stuck working at the lab now that her summer camp plans have fallen through. But she is by no means Dr. Frankenstein's snuffling assistant! That is, until three disembodied heads, left to thaw in the wet lab, start talking. To her. Out loud. What seems like a nightmare, or bizarre hallucination, is not. Fovea is somebody's Igor, all right. Three somebodies, actually. And they need a favor.
With a madcap sense of humor and a lot of heart (not to mention other body parts), this is a story about finding oneself, finding one's friends, and embracing the moment.
In my house, we LOVE Halloween. The candy, the costumes, the family time spent gathering that candy in the costumes. And alllllll the spooky! I’m blessed with two kids who embrace the creepy crawly side of life, so it’s not unusual to see Halloween decorations in my son’s room all year long or see my daughter trying to sneak an episode of Ghost Adventures in.
So, The Mortification of Fovea Munson is the PERFECT read for my middle graders! It’s fun and just a little spooky. I definitely can’t wait for my copy, so I can curl up and get a little fright, just in time for All Hallow’s Eve.
