Lord of the Rings meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets The Duff in this funny, fast-paced tale of middle-school monsters, self-image, and, oh yeah, actual monsters that want to kill everyone.

Laura Ledwick is…well…large. The kids at school don’t let her forget it, and call her by various names: Laura Largebottom, Laura Lardo, Lots of Laura—you get the idea. When Laura’s family moves to the next town over before eighth grade, she expects more of the same. What she doesn’t expect are the snake-like yellow eyes watching her from the forest. Or the mysterious rattling in her closet. Or finally making real friends for the first time. Or handsome uber-nerd Liam R. Kelp, who might just be the cutest boy to ever wear a Science Is Cool T-shirt. But when Laura finally discovers the source of the rattling, things take on a whole new level of weird. It turns out Laura has just been given the most important job in the world: Monster Crusher. Her role is simple: protect the earth from the horrors beneath their feet. Eighth grade is about to get a lot more interesting.

WESLEY KING is the award-winning author of the Vindico series; The Incredible Space Raiders from Space!; Dragons vs. Drones; and OCDaniel. His first novel, The Vindico, won the Red Maple Award and has been optioned for film and TV. It was also picked as a Junior Library Guild Selection, as was the sequel, The Feros.

"Monster Crusher is an exhilarating read with loads of ethical and feminist dilemmas tucked into Laura’s adventure from ‘nerdy new girl’ to ‘proudly nerdy monster-crusher supreme.’ . . . Highly Recommended." --CM Magazine

"[A]n admirable tale of self-acceptance that will show readers of all ages that just because something is considered a flaw, it doesn’t mean it is." --Atlantic Books Today
