Throwback Thursday #74 - Department 19

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?

Department 19 - Will Hill
Jamie Carpenter's life will never be the same. His father is dead, his mother is missing, and he was just rescued by an enormous man named Frankenstein. Jamie is brought to Department 19, where he is pulled into a secret organization responsible for policing the supernatural, founded more than a century ago by Abraham Van Helsing and the other survivors of Dracula. Aided by Frankenstein's monster, a beautiful vampire girl with her own agenda, and the members of the agency, Jamie must attempt to save his mother from a terrifyingly powerful vampire. 

Department 19 looks like a YA book with plenty of action and thrills. Most YA seems to focus on relationships and romance so something with some adventure and action sounds like a nice change of pace.

What do you think? What do you like to read for a change?

  1. Oh!! I have this one too! I just bought it a few short months ago for the kid to read. :) Sounds like a great pick.
