Only a Monster

Vanessa Len

Only a monster . . . can kill a hero. When the boy she loves turns out to be a legendary monster-slayer, sixteen-year-old Joan must embrace her own monstrousness to stop him, or risk losing her family forever.

She loves her job at the historic Holland House, and when her co-worker Nick asks her on a date, it feels like everything is falling into place. Then Joan learns the truth. Her family aren't just eccentric: they're monsters, with terrifying, hidden powers. And Nick isn't just a cute boy: he's a legendary monster slayer, who will do anything to bring them down.
