In this historical fiction book, Mary Shelley and her husband Percy travel to meet Lord Byron at his home by Lake Geneva, Switzerland. When Lord Byron challenges his guests to write a ghost story, Mary's story is inspired by a dream she had of a doctor, working in his lab on a dark, stormy night.

With compelling text, grade-appropriate vocabulary, and chapter format, this hi-lo reader is perfect for students who need high-interest, low-readability books.
