Fovea Munson is nobody's Igor. True, her parents own a cadaver lab where they perform surgeries on dead bodies. And yes, that makes her gross by association, at least according to everyone in seventh grade. And sure, Fovea's stuck working at the lab now that her summer camp plans have fallen through. But she is by no means Dr. Frankenstein's snuffling assistant!

That is, until three disembodied heads, left to thaw in the wet lab, start talking. To her. Out loud.

What seems like a nightmare, or bizarre hallucination, is not. Fovea is somebody's Igor, all right. Three somebodies, actually. And they need a favor.

With a madcap sense of humor and a lot of heart (not to mention other body parts), this is a story about finding oneself, finding one's friends, and embracing the moment.

Staff pick from Bookseller Casper at our 18th St. Store.

Fovea has had enough of dead bodies. But there’s no escaping them when your parents run a cadaver lab and your entire class thinks your life is one big Frankenstein joke. And there’s definitely no escaping them when your parents sign you up to be the lab’s summer receptionist. Or when the dead heads in the wet lab start talking. Or when a lab “specimen” goes missing and you have to team up with the not-so-dead heads to get it back…

This book is perfect for anyone who’s embarrassed by their family and those who appreciate a terrible pun.
