Format: Paperback
Frankie may be only be 15 days old but she can't wait to get out of her parents lab and start high school. Having spent her life being constantly praised by her parents Frankie is confident and knows she'll easily fit in at school and make friends but that's before her parents drop the bomb shell. Before she can go to school she must cover up her mint green skin and hide her bolts and seams - the normies at school wouldn't accept her if they knew she was a monster. The RADs (Regular Attribute Dodgers as the monsters like to call themselves) live amongst the normies (humans) in secrecy, blending in to avoid a witch hunt but Frankie thinks it's time for things to change. She wants the RADs to show the world their real selves - but is the world ready for them?

I was in the mood for a light hearted, fun read so Monster High seemed like the perfect choice and in a lot of ways it completely lived up to my expectations. It was funny, different from anything I've ever read and had a whole host of interesting supernatural characters. I really enjoyed trying to figure out which of the students at the school were RADs and what type of monsters they might be, a few of them were fairly obvious but there were a couple I didn't get until they revealed themselves.

I liked the fact that Frankie was so confident and proud of who she was, I completely related to her wanting to show her real self to the world and prove the normies had nothing to be afraid of. I was annoyed on her behalf by the attitude of the normies to the monster sightings and wanted to see things change. Frankie isn't the only new girl who starts at Merston High though and half of the story is told from Melody's perspective. Melody is a normie who has just moved into town with her family.

By Jenny, Wondrous Reads TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 9 Nov. 2010
Format: Paperback
Okay, hands up if you've ever wished you could be a classic monster. It'd be cool, right?! You could be Frankenstein's granddaughter, the Wolfman's cousin... I, of course, would quite like to be anyone from Dracula's bloodline (hehe), but I'm sure you guessed that already! Lisi Harrison has indulged in such an idea, complete with contemporary characters and a nod to more than one famous Hammer Horror monster. Now this is a high school I would have liked to attend!

Frankie Stein has been created by her parents, and is, you guessed it, quite similar to Frankenstein's Monster. She's sent to normie school in an attempt to fit in (which is a bit hard when you have green skin and bolts in your neck), but instead she ends up finding out she isn't the only RAD (Regular Attribute Disorder) in town. Her new friends include Draculaura, Lagoona Blue and Claudine, who all have such brilliant names that it's hard not to like them. Monster High is chock full of subtle and not-so-subtle references to horror films of old, and also proves how contemporary it is by name-dropping such acts as Lady Gaga.

Like The Clique for a slightly younger, horror-savvy reader, Monster High is fun, bitchy and stylish. The girls all experience romance and the (mundane) obstacles that accompany it, though they have even more to worry about than their wardrobe. I really liked the general idea of Monster High, though I didn't fall head over heels in love with the characters. They were cool, and I was interested in their lives, but I don't feel like I cared enough about any of them. Maybe that's how it's supposed to be with an ensemble cast, but even leading lady Frankie didn't fully convert me to the dark side. Maybe book 2 will let me connect with the characters more... here's hoping!

I gave 4 stars because of common teens' love story.
First I got interested in these dolls. Now I cannot stop buying new ones. Next, I watched all cartoons, and now decided to read books.
So, I noticed that people who read these books wrote that they are full of sexual content. Well, yes, but not that much. Actually this serie is marked as YOUNG ADULTS FICTION, so I don't understand why moms read these books to little girls... It is obviously for teens and young adults, about boys, dating, love and school life.
Well, since I just wanted to read some easy book, I was contented. I liked the idea of book, romance and just easy reading.

Ever since she started collecting the dolls, she's always wanted to read the books. Therefore on behalf of her Nana, she received the 4 books that she put on her Christmas list.. Hopefully there'll be more books for her to read in the coming months..

My daughter loves this book and all things Monster High - it is written well and although it is aimed at an older audience there is nothing in the book that younger children should not read.
I did read and vet it quickly on purchase and found it to be very girly and fun filled!

This book was good it had an amazing storyline with really relatable characters.I love the way Melody feels like an outcast with asthma and an ex-camel nose. The storyline was really good but it doesnt finish properly, never actually find out what happens.Overall it was enjoyable but a little disapointing.
