Shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award 2016, Francesca Simon's The Monstrous Child is an operatic and epic drama quite like any other book you've read.
It focuses on Hel, an ordinary teenager who just so happens to be the goddess of the Underworld. She wonders why life is so unfair but is determined to make the best of it, creating gleaming halls in her dark kingdom and welcoming the dead who she is forced to host for eternity.
Until eternity itself is threatened.
Much loved for her children's books including Horrid Henry, Francesca Simon's first teen novel is exhilarating.
This title has been shortlisted for 2017's YA Book Award.
