Merston High - aka Monster High - lives up to its nickname. The students aren't all normal.
Frankie Stein awoke for the first time - as a teenager. She's done her research on how to fit in, what clothes to wear, how to wear make-up, and has immersed herself in pop culture. She's ready to take on the world. Unfortunately, Frankie isn't normal. She comes from the Frankenstein family, complete with neck volts. In order to mask her identity, she'll have to blend into the normie world. However, Frankie's not happy with blending. She loves herself and is sure everyone else will, too - once they get past her mint green skin.
Melody and her family just moved to Salem, Oregon. After years of being a social outcast, she's ready to reinvent herself. She's approached by one of the popular girls and offered friendship in the pack. Before she can join, she must sign a contract stating that she will not go out or flirt with a certain boy, and she must always put her girlfriends first. As Melody doesn't have any interest in Brett, she signs the documents, happy for friendship. Besides, she already has her eye on the guy next door. He's cute, but there's something strange about him.
Frankie and Melody don't have much in common. They don't travel in the same social circles. But they are both new to the school. Both of them are trying to figure everything out. Only Frankie knows the truth about the monsters in the high school. Will Melody uncover her secret and ruin everything?
MONSTER HIGH is the first book in a new series where being different means something VERY different, and navigating high school becomes much harder.
