This book is wild, weird, hilarious, heartfelt, imaginative, and inventive. The spirit of Kurt Vonnegut is alive and well in its pages. --Jeff Zentner, author of The Serpent King * Heidicker sets the scene for a '50s B-movie just right...a satisfying mix of mild adolescent angst and creature feature comedy. --BCCB, starred review In Heidicker's funny, feminist send-up of B-movie cinema, selectively blind nostalgia, and TV binge watching, a teen girl living within a mysteriously connected string of monster movies learns to control her own narrative...frighteningly fun. --Booklist, starred review This is a wonderful and wholly unique entry in teen horror fiction. --School Library Journal Phoebe is a plucky, snarky heroine, and her fantastic adventure will entertain teens. --Kirkus Reviews
