The Mary Shelley Club

Moldavsky, G.
While Rachel Chavez is recovering from a violent attack, she befriends a group of students at her new school, Manchester Prep, who—like her—are fascinated by the horror genre and belong to a group called the Mary Shelley Club. Connected by their passion for horror films, these students conduct fear tests and plan horrific experiences for their unknowing victims. An engaging story for readers interested in this genre, this story deals with mature topics and is suitable for students in senior secondary grades. The novel may be an addition to a classroom or school library, and it may be used to expose students to various literary and stylistic elements. Teachers may introduce it as an option in literature circles for students interested in the horror genre or integrate it with books with similar themes of survival and anxiety.
