Where she came from there were no windows. The sounds of buzzing equipment and the doctor's shouting rang through her ears daily. It was too uncomfortable to call home and too familiar not to be. Like it or not, she was an experiment.

Filled with childlike wonder and innocence, she took pleasure in stories, imagining what it would be like to live in those pages. A longing

This story was so amazing from the start it had me enthralled. The writing and character development was strong. You will learn to love the main characters as I did.
Ms. Paige Lavoie is a truly a gifted Author, the way she draws you right into the story will keep you reading until the very end. You will laugh, cry and gasp as the story unfolds.

I highly recommend this book.

Not quite a monster

Frankenstein monster as a girl. Could it have been too much to give her a happy ending? After everything she went through I fell she deserved one.

Fresh retelling of a classic tale

"Frankenstein" is a favorite novel of mine, but sometimes it's great to see a new take on it -- or any other classic story. Paige Lavoie makes her interpretation of Mary Shelley's book a familiar one yet breathes new life into the story and the protagonist. The author gives "Monnie" a voice that the reader can both sympathize with and root for as she searches for independence.

Unusual, but entertaining.

Frankenstein 's monster meets the 21'st century. A different telling of the classic for sure. Told through the eyes of a female "creation". It is not a horror story, nor even a sci-fi. It is a book about identity, family and that being different can be beautiful.

Monnie was amazing, an interesting, creative, and well rounded character. Supporting cast varied from all the love to all the I want to throw them out of a window of a moving bus (you know who you are characters). A great read for anyone who likes the old monster stories and is in need of an updated version.

I never thought I could be so enthralled by a monster story. Paige Lavoie has established Monnie into becoming a truly astonishing being. Her trials and her attributes are well worth reading about.

An adorable, modern twist on Dr. Frankenstein and his monster. Easy to read and very engaging, playing on the emotions that everyone experiences when trying to find their way through this world we have.

Read as book 11 of the 2018 50 Book Challenge.

This was very interesting and I kinda loved it. It was definitely a take on the Frankenstein monster. Wish there was more romance but over really good.
