Summer of Monsters

By Tony Thompson

**eBook Edition** There is a monster within us all – it’s how you choose to use it that counts.

Mary Shelley’s life began in shadow. Unwanted and overlooked, her desire was to make something of her existence. So how would meeting a young poet change her path forever? Scandal. Passion. Desire. Mary’s choices were clear – but would she ever be free of her loneliness? Summer of Monsters is a Gothic coming-of-age story by Australian-based author Tony Thompson, perfect for lovers of young adult fiction. It explores Mary’s teenage life and the famous summer she spent with Percy Shelley and Lord Byron, which inspired her iconic horror/science fiction novel Frankenstein.
