Overview

After feeling like a freak all her life, 14 year-old Mimi Miller finally moves to a place where everyone agrees she's normal and beautiful. Sadly for her, those qualities make her the freakiest girl in town.

Welcome to Flopsville, Michigan, the town where werewolves specialize in hair restoration, vampires mend their broken hearts through blood-n-guts poetry, and zombies lurk social networks in search of the perfect brain. Here, making low-budget horror films is the leading industry. Or at least it used to be before a werewolf actor known as The Slasher got hungry and devoured 25 people in a single weekend. But now that Mimi, the granddaughter of a famous scriptwriter, has returned, the town's hope has been restored. That is, if Mimi can fulfill her Grandma's prophecy and unravel the meaning of her birthmark  before The Slasher turns her into his next meal.

A hilarious tale with a touch of mild horror and a twist ending, for young readers ages 9 and up.

Meet the Author

One day, when I was 14, my mom and dad announced that we were moving to a place called Michigan. I didn’t know where Michigan was. We lived in Puerto Rico at the time, a small island in the Caribbean. Can you guess when would be the absolute worst time to move to Michigan from a place where it’s always 80 degrees? That’s right, winter. We moved in the middle of winter to a town in Michigan where their notion of a foreigner was someone from Ohio. That’s where I started my high school years. In a cold place where I didn’t know anyone. I didn’t know how to act, or how to dress. I didn’t even know English. I felt exactly like Mimi Miller does when she enters Flopsville. The big difference is that I still had my parents, who gave me a lot of support. I also had my brothers and sister, and as scary as everyone in school was, they were not monsters, er, sorry, Cryptids.
…or were they?

    Fun and suspenseful

    I liked this book a lot. It was funny, disturbing, confusing, and suspenseful. It accurately portrayed the roles of the "New Girl" (new kid in a new town & school) and "Final Girl" (the girl that survives until the end in horror movies).

    Flopsville's story covers many of the old and new cliches found in scary movies. The main monsters, or cryptids, are werewolves, vampires, zombies, and Hollywood producers. They are described in the book. Its like a light non-gory horror movie.

    The heroine is the typical new girl that overcompensates in an aggressive way in order to fit in. Eventually, she unravels the mystery, and discovers who she really is deep inside.

    It can get a bit violent, but no bad language or adult situations are included. So, no young kids should probably read it unless they can handle a serial killer werewolf.
