Teen Frankenstein: High School Horror (Paperback)
High school meets classic horror in Teen Frankenstein, a modern reimagining of Mary Shelley's gothic novel from Chandler Baker.
It was a dark and stormy night when Tor Frankenstein accidentally hits someone with her car. And kills him. But, all is not lost—Tor, being the scientific genius she is, brings him back to life...
Thus begins a twisty, turn-y take on a familiar tale, set in the town of Hollow Pines, Texas, where high school is truly horrifying.
Chandler Baker grew up in Florida, went to college in Pennsylvania, and studied law in Texas, where she now lives with her family and an ever-growing pile of books. Although she loves spinning tales with a touch of horror, she is a much bigger scaredy-cat than her stories would lead you to believe. In addition to the High School Horror series, Chandler is the author of the young adult novel, Alive.
Chandler Baker lives in Austin with her husband and toddler where she also works as a corporate attorney. She is the author of five young adult novels. Whisper Network is her adult debut.
"There's a lot of humor—especially in Adam's not-too-successful attempts at imitating teen behavior. Tor is a prickly, unintentionally abrasive character whom some readers will find downright refreshing." —Kirkus Reviews
"Shelley’s classic gets a modern makeover in this first book in the High School Horror series.... a healthy dose of atmospheric horror." — Publishers Weekly
"In this trilogy opener, Baker takes the essence of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; throws in heaps of high school drama; mystery, and murder; and then sets it in the small town of Hollow Pines, TX." — School Library Journal
"First in the proposed High School Horror trilogy, this offers some scares as well as a strangely compelling protagonist. Recommend to fans of Shelley’s original and teens ready for more intrigue than R. L. Stine’s Fear Street series has to offer." —Booklist
"Chandler Baker’s Teen Frankenstein puts a nice twist on a classic tale. It’s a delightful, frightful, but emotional story which blends fantasy with modern day." — John C. Farris, deadburiedandback.com
