Monty the Monster by Rhonda Smiley is a fun book to read. Definitely something that middle schoolers/young adults might enjoy reading.
Monty is a 7th grader who has once again moved to a new place. It’s hard to make and keep friends when you move around so much. Monty finds a serum and decides to create a friend which should be much easier than making friends. However, things don’t go according to plan and Monty May have created a monster…literally. Monty has to come up with a new plan once he realizes his monster best friend may be eating neighborhood kids.
This book was a fun read but also very relatable for young people. Monty’s character can be easily related to at almost any age though. Making friends is not easy!
