A review by hsquared
Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron


The son of Frankenstein’s Monster and the Bride (known simply as Boy) is tired of hiding from humans and having to fulfill his parents’ expectations, proving that even monsters suffer from teen angst. When he takes off on a cross-country road trip with the granddaughters of Jekyll and Hyde, he learns some important lessons about friendship and being responsible for one’s actions. Give this to older fans of the Percy Jackson series, as they will appreciate the many references to mythical beasts and monsters. Math and science teachers may want to make use of the computer programming and AI references, as well as the ethical considerations facing any inventor or creator.
