Summary

Summary

Tom Stone stepped into Seward High and into Maria McBride's life like a bolt of lightning. He's the perfect guy for Maria--nice, smart, and well-built. There's just one problem: his family. Tom's father is the town's new funeral director, and business is booming. The bodies are piling up thick and fast in Persephone Falls, Alaska, so Dr. Stone keeps Tom up late at night working in the funeral home. And it's clear that Dr. Stone and his creepy assistant, Graves, don't want Maria around. Maria knows Tom was made for her. She's determined to find out what Dr. Stone has against her. When Tom refuses to stand up to his father, Maria begins to stitch together the clues...and finds out that the Stones are into recycling in ways she never could have imagined.

Booklist Review

Maria falls for the new guy in school, Tom, and he likes her, too. The problem is that the recent mysterious rash of deaths in their town might have something to do with his strange family. Will Maria be able to save the guy she loves, or will monstrous history repeat itself? The books in the My Boyfriend Is a Monster paranormal-romance graphic-novel series are only connected by theme, with each having a different writer and artist, but so far share the same slightly quirky sense of humor. Storrie especially likes to play with names, featuring characters such as Byron, Shelley, and Tom B. Stone. His story is fun and holds together well, even though the page count makes for a somewhat hurried romance. However, as Cowgur is careful to make Tom a hunk, readers will forgive Maria's speedy fall, and the black-and-white art brings the wilds of both high school and Alaska to life. As in the first book (I Love Him to Pieces, 2011), the romance and scares are real, but light, and make for a thoroughly enjoyable read.--Wildsmith, Sno. Copyright 2010 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-Frankenstein's Monster, aka Franklin Stone runs a funeral home where he harvests organs from bodies to create kinder, more humane versions of himself. Maria is thrilled with her new boyfriend, Tom B. Stone, who is Franklin's heartthrob "son." But can Tom explain the recent series of fatal accidents that have been giving the funeral home so much business? Written with humor and a fast pace, this book should have wide appeal, especially among fans of "Twilight" and other supernatural romances. The bold, black-and-white illustrations resemble classic comics such as "Archie" and reflect the story's romantic but irreverent tone.-Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2011.
