High school meets classic horror in Teen Frankenstein, a modern reimagining of Mary Shelley's gothic novel from Chandler Baker.
It was a dark and stormy night when Tor Frankenstein accidentally hits someone with her car. And kills him. But, all is not lost—Tor, being the scientific genius she is, brings him back to life...

Praise for Teen Frankenstein: High School Horror
"There's a lot of humor—especially in Adam's not-too-successful attempts at imitating teen behavior. Tor is a prickly, unintentionally abrasive character whom some readers will find downright refreshing." —Kirkus Reviews
"Shelley’s classic gets a modern makeover in this first book in the High School Horror series.... a healthy dose of atmospheric horror." — Publishers Weekly
"In this trilogy opener, Baker takes the essence of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; throws in heaps of high school drama; mystery, and murder; and then sets it in the small town of Hollow Pines, TX." — School Library Journal
"First in the proposed High School Horror trilogy, this offers some scares as well as a strangely compelling protagonist. Recommend to fans of Shelley’s original and teens ready for more intrigue than R. L. Stine’s Fear Street series has to offer." —Booklist
"Chandler Baker’s Teen Frankenstein puts a nice twist on a classic tale. It’s a delightful, frightful, but emotional story which blends fantasy with modern day." — John C. Farris, deadburiedandback.com
