Reviews

"Reef does an excellent job of putting Mary Shelley's life and work in context. Teen fans of Frankenstein will be doubly rewarded by both an account of the inspiration for the novel and the fascinating, scandal-rich life of its author."--Booklist

"A thorough, sensitive portrayal of one of literature's most remarkable authors."--Kirkus

"A
pleasurably angst-infused read."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Shelley comes solidly to life as a woman who, like her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, bucked the conventions of her time to follow her own star."--School Library Journal
