Made for Each Other
From the Series My Boyfriend Is a Monster
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.

“Be prepared for these titles to fly off the shelves.” —Library Media Connection
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
“This series, with the flashy titles (each extended with a sequence of several funny subtitles), eye-catching covers, and popular themes, will easily attract readers; happily, they will be rewarded with sturdy plots and clever takes on human/monster love.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
School Library Journal
“Written with humor and a fast pace, this book should have wide appeal, especially among fans of ‘Twilight’ and other supernatural romances.” —School Library Journal
School Library Journal
“The road to true love is never easy, whether you’re a jock, a nerd, or the new guy. But throw in zombies and Frankenstein’s monster and things get really difficult! Terrific art and sweet romances make these fun stories winners for fans of the paranormal. Every volume in the series (more are planned for the fall) features different characters, paranormal creatures, writers, and artists, giving readers a chance to enjoy the variety.” —School Library Journal
“Teens who want horror with some romance (or romance with a little horror) will have fun with this book.” —VOYA
“The romance and scares are real, but light, and make for a thoroughly enjoyable read.” —Booklist
