The Mortification of Fovea Munson
Fovea’s parents are weird–not just the regular weird most parents are but extra weird. To start, they named their only daughter Fovea (it means eyeballs). They are both doctors, but they don’t work in a regular doctor’s office; they actually own their own lab where they perform surgeries and tests on dead bodies. Fovea had a really hard time this past year at school. When her ex-bff told all the other kids what her parents do for a living, Fovea got the nickname Igor, like Frankenstein’s assistant. Fovea was looking forward to summer vacation until her summer camp called to tell them that they had to cancel. Now Fovea has to spend the summer at her parents’ lab as their receptionist. All kinds of crazy things happen at the lab. Even though the whole idea of dead bodies creeps her out, Fovea ends up making some new friends, and her summer is not ruined.
This is a very funny story. All of the character interactions were hysterical. The story was a great example of how, even if you’re different, you can find friends in the most unlikely places. This was an excellent, exciting book filled with adventure and laughs.
