My thoughts: 5 *'s

Poor 14 year old Eve has to move from her monster world to the human world with her monster family, and learn to fit in with humans to solve the mystery of murders that have happened in the monster town she grew up in. Eve starts right out making enemies of "mean teen girls" and getting on the principal's bad side. Her father, mother, and brother are all monsters in disguise and they all suffer some hilarious culture shock.

The book was very funny as Eve finds herself in one fix after another with monsters and humans. The book was appropriate to be read by a teen. The descriptions of the characters and the opposing worlds are very imaginative and interesting and the mystery to be solved only adds to the book's lure. My 7 year old enjoyed hearing the story, and I found it enjoyable myself. I give the book a great 5 stars. I believe it is well written and well thought out and comes out a winner!
