The Mortification of Fovea Munson
by Mary Winn Heider

Fovea Munson (yes that’s her actual name) is having a rough time. Her best friend doesn’t want to be friends anymore, and everyone found out that her parents own a cadaver lab. Yep, an actual lab for dead bodies and body parts. And to make it worse, Fovea has to work all summer in the lab. On her first day she discovers three people that need her help. I should mention that the people that need help are just heads. Talking, defrosting heads. She wants to think that it’s a bad dream, but she isn’t waking up. She does her best to help them and makes some new friends along the way. There are a lot of ridiculous moments that are sure to give you a few chuckles.
