Overview

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

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. And they need a favor.

"Equal parts screwball comedy, coming-of-age story, and tearjerker-I loved, loved, loved it!" — Varian Johnson, author of The Parker Inheritance
