Emerald Fennell combines sharp psychological insight with mordant humour to fashion a dark, contemporary fairy tale.
*Daily Mail*

...a mash-up of Carrie and Bluebeard with a touch of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is smart, modern and fresh. This savagely and ultimately bleak tale is not for the faint of heart.
*Financial Times*

Monsters by Emerald Fennell is absolutely great. It's about two appalling children, a sinister seaside holiday and a spate of murders. It's gripping and astonishingly, gleefully dark.
*The Spectator*

Emerald Fennel's MONSTERS is a tremendous, destabilising work of fiction, infusing the mundane with eerie and unsettling darkness. It is written, moreover, in a remarkable tone of voice: Roald Dahl meets Muriel Spark. Astonishing.
*New Statesman*

..the two kids embark on a blissful summer of voyeurism, spying, and youthful sleuthing of the most appalling kind. They may not be the Secret Seven, but they are disturbingly compelling.
*The Guardian*

Emerald Fennel's MONSTERS will delight 12-plus fans of Edward Gorey, Lemony Snicket and Bret Easton Ellis; it is a hideously funny account by a cynical 13 year old girl of a series of murders in the Cornish town of Fowey. Sophisticated and suspenseful, it has a view of parents that adults would be wise to avoid reading.
*New Statesman*

It's very difficult not to overuse the word disturbing to describe this book... Monsters is a challenging novel for teens that is a well-balanced combination of shocking, thought-provoking and gruesomely entertaining writing.
*We Love This Book*

A modern classic... Not for the faint-hearted, but lovers of pitch-black humour, unreliable narrators and unspeakable children will have a ball with Fennell's tale of an idyllic Cornish town, an inconvenient body, and two 12-year-olds unwholesomely obsessed with murder
