Monstrous Bodies by Sandy Thomson

"on the northern shores of the Tay, near Dundee…. the airy flights of my imagination, were born" 
Mary Shelley, Author's Introduction to Frankenstein" 1831

It's 1812 and the country is coming apart at the seams. War, poverty, and riots make it a dangerous place for a young girl but after a furious row with her stepmother she is sent away from home, alone, into the care of the rich and radical Baxter family of Dundee.  Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin is 14 and hasn't met the man who will make her Mary Shelley yet. She hasn't done anything yet. But her genius for finding trouble pitches her into a world of politicians, revolutionaries, lunatics, American fugitives, and the ladies of The Glassite Church Floral Tea Committee.
 
In 2017, Roxanne had so much studying to do for school she nearly didn't go to the party on Peep O'Day Lane. But everyone needs a night off, right? She doesn't mean to crash out but when someone takes a topless photo of her, Roxanne's life as she knows it is over.
 
Unless it isn't.
