“Poignant and necessary… a novel vital to young adults’ lives that examines the intersections of sexuality, gender, and race—issues and blurred boundaries that teens grapple with in a society that favors neat and tidy boxes.”Booklist, starred review
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein
Author: Kiersten White
Read by: Katharine Lee McEwan
The New York Times bestseller! “Exquisitely disturbing,” raves internationally bestselling author Stephanie Garber of this stunning and dark reimagining of Frankenstein that’s just meant to be heard. Warning: listen with the lights on!

★ “Breathtaking.”PW, starred review

“In this clever retelling of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, White neatly undercuts the original by making Victor’s narrative wildly unreliable . . . this character-driven novel with a healthy amount of gore should appeal to horror fans, too.” Booklist

“The language is often surprisingly lyrical with the narrative flowing smoothly despite frequent flashbacks…Recommended for YA collections traveling on the dark side.”—Library Journal
