Book Spotlight: My Boyfriend is a Monster: I Love Him to Pieces

My Boyfriend is a Monster:  I Love Him to Pieces by Evonne Tsang

Review by Tiffany, Sebastopol Branch

Dicey, a jock, and Jack, a nerd, have to work together to keep an egg alive for a school project.  In the middle of their project, they start to have feelings for each other and decide to go out on a first date.  One their first date, a zombie apocalypse breaks out in their town (don’t you just hate it when that happens?!?).  Will the two make it out of the city alive?

Why I picked it up:  I’m in the middle of reading 25 out of the 80 “Best of the Best” YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) books.  This book is listed as one of the top ten graphic novels for teens.

Why I’d finished it:  I’m not normally into graphic novels, but this one was somewhat endearing.  I really liked the two characters, Dicey and Jack.  Plus it only took me about ½ hour to read.

Who I would recommend it to:  Anyone who wants a quick, fast, fun read with zombies.  I had fun reading something different than what I usually pick up.
