Gott'im's Monster is YA coming-of-age speculative fiction for teenagers with heads. A New England Gothic recasting of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Gott'im's Monster is set in the mountains of Western Maine, 1808 and the 1980s. ""Gott'im refers to Gottheim, a small Maine town. The locals call it Gott'im. If I had to reduce a complicated, vivid book to a one-liner, I'd say that Gott'im's Monster is a Maine-grown dialogue with Shelley's Frankenstein, opening up the arc with questions about how and why the irrational can irrupt into what we think of as rational life. The land and the town are as important as the individual characters, setting the reader up for an absorbing read."" -Sherwood Smith, author of the Wren Books and Sartorias-deles; co-author of Exordium.
