My Monster by Einat Segal


Girl meets boy, boy turns out not be human.

This is one of those YA-style stories with a first-person, snarky teen narrator. I’d say it’s more a teen drama with fantasy elements than fantasy with teen drama elements, but I still enjoyed it. The main character is well developed, the writing’s very readable, and the story rolls on enjoyably despite the fantasy not kicking in until quite late.

The plot is minimal: a new boy comes to school. He fancies Sophie. Sophie fancies him, but is also fighting off the attentions of her nemesis Shawn, although she sorta fancies him too. Quite a lot of sex happens (not too explicit). I can understand why this went down well on Wattpad. It’s not going to change your life, but it’s fun.
