When Mystical Creatures Attack!When Mystical Creatures Attack! by Kathleen Founds

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Despite its title, this book is set in contemporary Texas when Ms. Freedman, a high school teacher, suffers a mental breakdown after receiving her students' essays about mystical creatures solving the world's problems. (She was already on the verge.) The novel is told in epistolary form, through letters, emails, essays, and journals, and we learn a lot about Ms. Freedman and two of her students. The book is a strong mixture of very funny moments told amidst some sad circumstances. Beautifully written and conceived, this is an inventive and strong novel.


[I received this title as an e-galley through Netgalley.]
