Monsterville by Sarah S. Reida is an amazing book! I recommend it for 10-13 year olds. Monsterville is a story about a girl named Lissa who lives in New York City. Lissa’s aunt has died and suddenly, without discussion, her family is packing up and moving to “the sticks” of Freeburg, Pennsylvania. At first, Freesburg seems like a peaceful little town…. even sleepier than Sleepy Hollow! But just wait…
Lissa’s little sister, Haylie, finds a board game in their aunt’s attic called “Monsterville.” Haylie finds that she loves the game and always wins on the werewolf or, as she calls it, the “doggy’s” path. Then, Lissa finds her aunt’s hidden notebook, which gives her some clues that some people … and some things… are not what they seem. For example, the seemingly harmless board game Monsterville just might lead to real trouble for Lissa and her sister. On Halloween night, Haylie goes missing and it’s up to Lissa, her new neighbor, Adam, and a mysterious friend with unusual features to find Haylie before it’s too late.
Can Lissa rescue Haylie or will all be lost and the monsters reign forever? Read this spooky and exciting book to find out. You won’t regret it – I loved it!
