Fovea Munson discovers three disembodied heads that won't stop talking in this funny, gross-out, genuine middle grade novel by a talented debut author.
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.
Hilarious and disgusting in equal measure. In other words, exactly what you've been waiting for." - Adam Gidwitz, Newbery Honor winning author of The Inquisitor's Tale
Equal parts screwball comedy, coming-of-age story, and tearjerker-I loved, loved, loved it! - Varian Johnson, author of The Great Greene Heist
