Release Date: September 6, 2011
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: Grace moves to San Francisco but fears monsters and girl who looks just like her who shows up to fight them. Orphan Gretchen is tired of battling monsters. Her mentor vanishes. Wealthy Greer has busy social life, no room for joining triplets on her doorstep. Three teen descendants of Medusa must unite and fight monsters only they can see -- or are some good?
My Thoughts: I really liked this one! Its the beginning of a series and I can’t wait to read the rest in the series! We are introduced to Grace who just moved to San Francisco. It’s a change of scenery for her in more ways than one. She starts to see mysterious and weird things! We also meet two other girls Gretchen and Greer.
I think out of all three girls, I did like Grace the most. Maybe it’s because I was introduced to her first or maybe it’s because of how easy she adapts to things. I liked her brother as well. He was a cutie but I think there might be more to him than we know just yet.
I also liked the love interest. I hope to see more of him. I don’t want to say too much about this one because it’s a great start and it just flows so nicely. A lot happened but then when you think about it, not really much at all. I’ll be excited to see where the next book takes us.
Overall: I liked this one a lot. I usually like Childs' books so I was happy to finally get to read this one! Took me a while to get to it, but glad I did. Excited to read more of this series soon!
Cover: Love it! She looks totally badass from the back! And Love her braid!
