Book Review - The Mortification of Fovea Munson by Mary Winn Heider + Giveaway

Photo Credit - Amazon
Fovea Munson's parents are no ordinary doctors. They perform surgeries on dead people. They also own a cadaver lab. Because of this, Fovea is gross by association and is called "Igor" by her classmates. When her summer camp is closed, Fovea is forced to work at her parent's lab. The cadaver lab is nothing short of being boring until Fovea ventures into the wet lab. She discovers three disembodied heads that start talking to her. They are willing to help her in exchange for a favor. Is Fovea hallucinating? What is the favor?

The young adult novel was boatloads of madcap fun filled humor about body parts. The novel is about finding oneself and not letting other people's expectation dictate your life. I enjoyed antics with Fovea and the disembodied heads. While, the ending was unexpected but it was still enjoyable.

**Disclosure - I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion**

Fovea Munson is nobody's Igor. True, her parents own a cadaver lab where they perform surgeries on dead bodies. And yes, that makes her gross by association, at least according to everyone in seventh grade. And sure, Fovea's stuck working at the lab now that her summer camp plans have fallen through. But she is by no means Dr. Frankenstein's snuffling assistant!

That is, until three disembodied heads, left to thaw in the wet lab, start talking. To her. Out loud. 

What seems like a nightmare, or bizarre hallucination, is not. Fovea is somebody's Igor, all right. Three somebodies, actually. And they need a favor.

With a madcap sense of humor and a lot of heart (not to mention other body parts), this is a story about finding oneself, finding one's friends, and embracing the moment.
