Five Behind-the-scenes Secrets About TEEN FRANKENSTEIN
by Chandler Baker
This week my publisher, Macmillan, is giving away TEN advanced copies of my newest book, Teen Frankenstein, the first in the High School Horror series, out January 12, 2016. I’m psyched to start sharing this book with readers and I want you to be, too. That’s why I’m sharing five behind-the-scenes secrets about the book.
The first line of Teen Frankenstein is: “Yesterday I didn’t win a Nobel Prize.”
Originally, the main character, Tor’s, laboratory was in a tool shed near her house. My editors were having a hard time picturing Tor’s tool shed. I decided to change it to a storm cellar, which opened up a whole plot line in the book.
Tor has a lazy, scaredy-cat bulldog named Einstein, who has been in the book since the idea’s conception and who was one of my favorite parts of the story to write.
One of my editor’s notes was that if Tor were sorted into a house at Hogwarts, she would be in Slytherin. This was a major revelation to me!
I like to think of Teen Frankenstein as more of a re-imagining than a retelling. There is a distinction in my mind where the latter tries to hit distinct plot points in the classic story on which it is based.
