[b:The Monster Exchange Program|15844718|The Monster Exchange Program (the complete series)|Terri Bogard|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1360685024s/15844718.jpg|21587694] by Terri Bogard consists of sixteen different stories, about monsters in a high school (a hu-mahn high school!). Each story is peculiarly different than the other.
I liked the stories in general. The characters, the dialogues, and the illustrations- everything is quite different than usual. It portrays the traditional concept of high school with very nontraditional characters doing familiar moves. Sometimes the stories are not complete in them and have links to other stories.
As for the dialogues, I must warn that there are a lot of sexual references in most of the stories. If you are not comfortable or not allowed than please don’t read it until you are. I have no problem regarding this however but still in some places I found myself struggling a bit to get used to the references. Other than that I loved the dialogues. Some of them were simply hilarious according to me!
“When I see you look this good in your werewolf form, it makes me think that maybe there is room for monster-shaped models in the fashion world! I’m telling my mom tonight that I want to be a runway model!”
“If she can’t accept me for who I am, well, then she’ll just have to kill me, melt me down
with her caustic stomach juices and feed me to my little sisters!”
The book is altogether a funny, comic, enjoyable read. Though I personally think it should have an 18+ rating, I would recommend it to the readers who want a good laugh, nothing too deep or serious.
