Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it’s also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster.

Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though.

Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters.

These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful gorgon maligned by myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.

Apparently, Greek mythology is the new paranormal. I like it, this whole idea of decendents of Medusa - 3 girls coming together - to fight off supernatural beings. Medusa never really was my favorite of the Greek mythologies, simply because I am terrified of snakes and everytime I've seen her she's had snakes as her basic head gear, so it was like...yeah, not for me. But, with this book, I think I'll be able to let go of that fear, as long as snakes don't like start popping out of the pages or anything like that. We're cool.
