I've been thinking about it a lot.
Book summary: Accustomed to a carefree existence, 15-year-old Parker Baer meets the girl next door and finds his life taking a menacing turn as he begins to absorb some of her terrible powers.
This book is the retelling of the Greek story about Medusa and the Gorgon sisters. This was a great and interesting way to bring the old mythology story to life for kids' interests. I plan to read books #2 and #3 but haven't gotten there yet.
