"Where's Jack Chen? Jack Chen? Anyone?"
–Evonne Tsang - I love him to pieces - c.2011
My boyfriend is a monster #1. Illustrated by Janina Garrissen.
In St. Petersberg High School, Florida Dicey Bell is looking for Jack Chen. He doesn’t know it but he is her Babby Daddy! For that egg project some schools do to promote proper care and attention to eggs…They don’t usually talk. She’s the jock. Into sports, on the baseball team. He’s the nerd, always with his nose in a book. But you know what they say about opposites attracting. But on their very first date something unusual happens, zombies attack!
This is a quick fun read. The first in a series called My boyfriend is a monster and I really enjoyed it. I flew through it in one sitting, and while it may not leave a huge mark on my soul it was exactly what it set out to be. A fun zombie story.
I liked both Dicey and Jack. They are exactly what they say they are, and both are likeable. And no stupid love triangle, which is always a plus :)
And as this is a comic/graphic novel, I guess I should mention the artwork. Well, it is black and white, but, like the book in general, it does what it sets out to do. So while I amn’t rushing out to buy prints I can say that it was perfect for the story.
All in all a good fun read.
