Description - Monstrous Child by Francesca Simon
I am Hel, goddess of the dead.
This is my story.
I didn't start off hating everything.
I liked flowers. I liked trees. I liked bears. I liked mountains. I liked glaciers.
It's just mortals I can't stand. And the Gods. And my family.
Meet Hel, ordinary teenager - hates her parents, her brothers are monsters, in love with someone who'll never love her back - but she just happens to be goddess of the underworld too. Why is life SO unfair? Still, Hel tries to make the best of it, creating gleaming halls in her dark kingdom and welcoming the dead whom she is forced to host for eternity. Until eternity itself is threatened...
Francesca Simon's breakout new novel for ages 11+ is a hilarious and thought-provoking sideways look at life - and death - through the eyes of the funniest teenager in all the (under)world.
