Only a Monster: The captivating YA contemporary fantasy debut

21,000+ Reviews has the highest-rated customer service of any bookstore in the world


In every story there is a hero and a monster.
'Mind-bending, heart wrenching, and unputdownable!' STEPHANIE GARBER

It should have been the perfect summer. Sent to stay with her eccentric family in London, Joan is determined to enjoy herself. She loves her job at the historic Holland House, and when her co-worker Nick asks her on a date, it feels like everything is falling into place. Then Joan learns the truth.

Her family aren't just eccentric: they're monsters, with terrifying, hidden powers.

And Nick isn't just a cute boy: he's a legendary monster slayer, who will do anything to bring them down.

To save herself and her family, Joan will have to do what she fears most: embrace her own monstrousness. Because in this story . . . she is not the hero.

Dive deep into the world of Only a Monster, where the line between monster and hero is razor thin: hidden worlds dwell in the shadows, beautiful monsters with untold powers walk among humans, and secrets are the most powerful weapon of all.
