Description
Don't miss this monster of a New York Times bestseller, a stunning and dark reimagining of Frankenstein that i nternationally bestselling author Stephanie Garber raves is "exquisitely disturbing." Elizabeth Lavenza hasn't had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her "caregiver," and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets . . . until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything--except a friend. Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable--and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable. But her new life comes at a price. As the years pass, Elizabeth's survival depends on managing Victor's dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness. **Ebook exclusive: the full text of Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN** AN NPR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR A CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR "A masterful and monstrous retelling."-- STEPHANIE GARBER , #1 New York Times and internationally bestselling author of Caraval and Legendary " Inescapably compelling ." -- VICTORIA SCHWAB, #1 New York Times bestselling author of This Savage Song "An inventive, grotesque, and completely unexpected reimagining of Frankenstein . Mary Shelley would be proud ."-- MACKENZI LEE , New York Times bestselling author of The Gentlemen's Guide to Vice and Virtue
