Waiting On Wed: Monster High

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on:

Monster High by Lisi Harrison
Release Date: September 1, 2010

I'm excited about this one for a few reasons.  I think it just sounds fun and cute and fun (I mean the cover screams cute!), plus I have so many students that have read the Clique series that I know they'll be excited to see a new series by the same author. 

From Goodreads:
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.

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?


  1. Great pick! So many of my students loved The Clique series as well. I will have to check this one out.

  2. You're right this does sound really fun and cute. Middle school audience will eat this up.

  3. This sounds really interesting. I've read a few Clique books and enjoy them as a little less dirty than Gossip Girl.
    PS I love the owls on your site. They look homemade. I'm a new follower.

  4. Do you want an ARC copy of this? I picked one up at ALA, but I probably won't read it. Let me know - I wouldn't mind sending it to you.
