Product description

Product Description

Vic Howard never wanted to go to the party. He's the Invisible Guy at school, a special kind of hell for quiet, nice guys. But because his best friend is as popular as Vic is ignored, he went...

And wished he hadn't.

Because something happened to a girl that night. Something terrible, unimaginable, and Callie Wheeler's life will never be the same. Plus, now Callie has told the police that Vic is responsible. Suddenly, Invisible Vic is painfullyvisible, on trial both literally, with the police, and figuratively, with the angry kids at school. As the whispers and violence escalate, he becomes determined to clear his name, even if it means an uneasy alliance with Callie's best friend, the beautiful but aloof Autumn Dixon.

But as Autumn and Vic slowly peel back the layers of what happened at the party, they realize that while the truth can set Vic free, it can also shatter everything he thought he knew about his life...

I received an e-copy of Modern Monsters by Kelley York from Entangled teen via Netgalley for an honest review. This has in no way influenced my thoughts on the book.
Modern Monsters isn’t like something that I have read before. It’s hard to read, gripping and eye opening. Modern Monsters tells the story of everyone’s worst nightmare for more than one person.
Modern Monsters follows Vic Howard, the invisible guys. Not literally, but the guy that doesn’t have many friends, the one that you see in the background. People talk to him, but not because they like, just so they can invite his best friend Brett to parties and Vic is there way in.
Vic also has a stutter, and I think it’s fantastic! I love diverse characters and books and the main protagonist having a stutter is perfect. You are unable to detect it when he is telling the story, but when he is speaking, it’s all out in the open.
Vic never wanted to go to the party, but after being convinced by Brett and lying to his mum on the way he ends up at a party that would change his life forever.
There are a lot of books out there that tell the story of the person that was raped or even the rapist, but there are very few novels out there that follow, the life of the person being accused of rape.
Vic was doing the right thing and I wish all guys were like this. He saw a girl throwing up, decided to help her and suffered consequences of a good deed. Callie Wheeler’s life changed forever that night, but so did Vic’s.
Modern Monsters takes the reader on a journey of suffering. For most of his life, no one knew who Vic was by name, but now everyone knows. All I wanted to do was give him a big hug.
It was so hard to read, not because of the subject per say, but just what happened around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Story Dealing with a Difficult Issue 6 June 2015
By Francesca - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a heart wrenching read in the best possible way. York manages to deal with a difficult topic with poise. It's not every day you come across a novel dealing with rape told from the accused's POV. This made it both unique and interesting.

As I was reading, I couldn't help but feel for Vic. He's the quintessential "nice guy" that is often looked over. If it wasn't for his best friend, the quintessential "it guy", Vic would be ignored altogether. Vic felt worthless at school and worthless at home. Even his mom didn't seem to really care for him - reasons behind this are explained later on. I wanted to jump into the story and give him a hug.

His best friend, Brett, seemed to help a bit, but the two were so co-dependent on one another it was a bit off-putting. I couldn't help but think Brett came across as more self-serving than anything - wanting Vic to go with him places, but then ignoring him once they got there. I wasn't the biggest fan of Brett off the bat.

Then we meet Autumn whom I adored. She was the perfect combination of snarky, spunky and caring. I loved how she got Vic to open up and really saw all the good in him. It was a pleasure watching these two fall in love. I was happy to see Vic get some sort of happy ending.

There were a few "twists" and turns along the way as Vic and Autumn attempt to uncover what really happened to Callie. While they were somewhat predictable, they didn't take away from the overall story. This is definitely one of my favorite reads of the year.
4.0 out of 5 stars How far would you go to support a friend accused of rape? 29 July 2015

Grade: B+

Vic lives in the shadow of his popular best friend and protector Brett. His mother barely acknowledges his existence and girls, well he's never actually talked to one. After helping Callie, a drunk a classmate, at a party, she accuses him of rape. Everyone assumes he's guilty, even his mother. Everyone except Brett and maybe Callie's best friend Autumn. Together they try of find the real rapist before Vic is thrown into jail for a crime he didn't commit.

MODERN MONSTERS is a topical story about a crime that happens too often, in schools, on campuses and even among celebrities. Maybe because I'm an adult I figured out the twists and turns before I hit 10%, but the predictably didn't detract from my enjoyment of the novel. Kelley York created a likable, believable protagonist in Vic, a good kid who makes some bad decisions. At times I had trouble understating his friendship with Brett, though I enjoyed the mutual respect they seemed to have for each other and was glad that Brett's family were surrogates for Vic's. Everyone should have a friend like Autumn.

MODERN MONSTERS is an important story about judgment, rape, family, trust and the bounds and limits of friendship.
5.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing read 30 August 2015

It feels a bit strange to say I "enjoyed" this book, because it's such a weighty topic, but I was totally drawn into Victor's story. This was an absorbing read that looks at the subject of rape from a different perspective, from that of the accused. I felt Victor's frustration at every turn and couldn't wait for the truth to come out for him, even though as things went on, I had a sinking feeling I knew what that truth would be. I'd definitely recommend this one and look forward to more of Ms. York's work.
5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED this book 12 October 2015
By bookrunner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I LOVED this book! There are so many books that claim to be meaningful and different from any other YA novel out there - but this one really was. Mostly because it addressed topics I haven't seen addressed by a young adult author before. Instead of discussing rape from the victim's point of view, we learn about it from the point of view of the accused rapist. Vic himself is such a layered character, as is Callie. Amazing.
5.0 out of 5 stars My other favorite is Suicide Watch 7 July 2015

I picked it up and couldn't put it down. Kelley York captures your attention and doesn't let it go. The characters are well rounded and the plot had me involved from the beginning. My other favorite is Suicide Watch. Now I can't decide which is my favorite. Hope Kelley keeps on writing for many years to come.
