"Set against the tumultuous political backdrop of late 1960s Chicago, and narrated by 10-year-old Karen Reyes, Monsters is told through a fictional graphic diary employing the iconography of B-movie horror imagery and pulp monster magazines. As the precocious Karen Reyes tries to solve the murder of her beautiful and enigmatic upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a holocaust survivor, we watch the interconnected and fascinating stories of those around her unfold"--Front cover flap.

Read This. submitted by monet tiedemann on September 13, 2017, 8:38am This was amazing. I cannot wait for Book Two. I wanted to spend so much time lost in the illustration, but also wanted to read quickly for the story.
