Book Review - The Mortification of Fovea Munson

The Mortification of Fovea Munson

About the Book
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.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that you will love! This book has amazing characters that will make you laugh throughout the entire book. This author has a great way with words and does an amazing job at capturing the voices of the characters. The book shows a great coming of age story that also has some drama too. My daughter told me that she laughed and cried as she was reading this and as I was reading it, while I did not cry, I did laugh and it was a very fun book to read!
