**Berkeley Reviews ~ Monster High ~ Lisi Harrison**

Monster High (Monster High, #1)

Monster High
Series: Monster High #1
Author: Lisi Harrison
Genre: YA Paranormal
Release Date: September 1, 2010

They prefer to call themselves RAD (Regular Attribute Dodgers), but some call them monsters. So far, the "monster" community has kept a low profile in Salem, but this year two new girls enroll at Master High School, and 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 cheerleading. But with a student body totally freaked out by rumors of monsters who might be 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?

Berkeley's Review

Monster High is about monsters going to a public high school in Salem, Oregon. The newest member of the RADs (Regular Attribute Dodgers), Frankie, thinks that it's wrong for the RADs to have to hide their freaky flaws. As her fight begins she has to find what she really wants in this fight. And what to do to help her people.

The fight for Frankie’s personality, and the way she gets involved in the fight that is not hers at first was one of the most interesting parts. But Harrison also added in the other side of the fight from a mixed up girl named Melody. I really enjoy the way this book is written from so many different peoples perspectives. This is a really good book for pre teens. The only bad thing about this book is that they make some of the characters seem so clueless.  


  1. I see this one on the bookshelves all the time. Multiple POVs is fun and to get the other side of the fight is cool. Great review, Berkeley!

  2. I've seen the dolls in stores, but I didn't realize Monster High is also a book. I'm glad you liked this!
