Peek Inside Modern Monsters

Last night, something terrible happened to a girl at a party. And now she’s told the police that quiet Vic Howard did it. Suddenly Vic’s gone from being invisible to being a major target. He’s determined to find out what really happened, even if it means an uneasy alliance with the girl’s best friend, Autumn Dixon. But while the truth can set Vic free, some truths can destroy a life forever...

Vic Howard didn’t really want to go to the party. He’s the Invisible Guy in school, a special kind of hell for quiet, nice guys. But because his best friend as is as popular as he’s persona-non-grata, Vic went…and wished he didn’t.

Something happened that night. A girl was raped. Worst of all, she’s told the police that Vic did it. Suddenly Vic is painfully visible, walking through halls filled with hostility and pending violence. Even his mom thinks he’s guilty. Now Vic is determined to find out what really happened that night, even if it means an uneasy alliance with the girl’s best friend, Autumn Dixon.

But while the truth can set Vic free, it can also shatter everything he thought he knew about his life…


"Readers who come into this looking for a hard-hitter like I did will likely find themselves in for an even tougher read than they think. All I can say is that the damage of rape is a few degrees closer to each of us than we’d like to think and Vic is no exception. Fans of dark contemporary novels will likely love York’s latest novel and want to check out her backlist. Between my experience with Modern Monsters and some good word one of my friends put in while I was reading, I know I plan to!"- The YA Kitten

Thank you Netgalley for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest review

I have been a fan of Kelley York ever since I read and loved Hushed. After that book, I was instantly in love. Her writing was so dark and her characters so twisted, I couldn't help myself. And when I heard she wa...

I liked the book, and I loved the characters, but I thought it was a bit predictable. For the most part, the plot was pretty good, but again, kinda predictable. I think what bothered me the most was that, despite Vic wanting to find out who the real crook—rapist—was, he and Autumn spent more... ...more

Modern Monsters is the story of Callie, a high school senior who was raped one night while at a lake house party for both college and high school kids. What makes this story so utterly different and unique compared to any other with this subject matter is that it’s not told from Callie’s POV as t... ...more

(I received a copy from Netgalley, In exchange for an honest review.)

Actual rating - 3.5

I felt sorry for both Callie and Vic in this. What happened to Callie was awful, but what Vic had to go through wasn't very nice either.

I had a feeling that I knew who the rapist was early on, so it.../>

Modern Monsters was a very pleasant surprise for me, a fairly short and exciting novel that can be read in one sitting. It’s very tightly written and compulsively readable and it gives us a convincing male voice, something we don’t get nearly often enough in YA fiction. Vic is not your average he... ...more

Rating: 3.5 - I was excepting more from this book, to be honest. I did enjoy the plot and characters (except for a few certain ones...), but it was overall really predictable in my opinion. ...more

If I had to use one word to describe Modern Monsters it would be gut-wrenching; it broke my heart over and over. What happens when you do the right thing and it backfires? That is the basis for Modern Monsters.

Our main character Vic is shy, a bit weird, reclusive, respectable young ma... ...more

I received this ARC from Entangled Teen through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book faces a really tough, sensitive subject.

I really, really loved Vic's character. He really grew so much through the course of the story, while facing incredibly hard to deal with issues. You rea...
