A bonus second book review for today!
Behold Her Majestic Fog is written by my dear blogging friend Meg Kimball. I knew going in that this was a young adult novel in the “campy horror” genre, but I wasn’t sure what that actually meant.
Well, now I know. The novel takes place during a church lock-in, which involves some teenagers having an overnighter in a church with some adults to supervise. Not far into the book, things start to get a little crazy.
An alien makes an appearance, along with a ghost who has Munchausen’s by proxy and a horde of bazombies (short for Baptist zombies).
Even Wilford Brimley and his diabeetus join the party. I’d heard about this ahead of time and wasn’t sure who he was, but found this fun ad:
The female youth group leader becomes possessed. Prior to that, she “had been doomed to a future of growing old, adopting fifteen incontinent cats, wearing comfy cardigans, and talking to her houseplants.” But in her possessed state, she becomes a horny little minx, and gets herself a little somethin’ somethin’.
The book is fast-paced, with plenty of surprise twists. And most of all, it’s a whole lot of fun.
