Skip to Content. It's hard to avoid the story's message about conquering fears, which are repeated in the dialogue at nearly every turn. Examples of friendship and family bonds are strong as well, and there's a minor subplot that observes the transition of a mean girl into a less snooty, friendlier version of herself. A teen's defiance of her parents' rules has drastic although hardly likely consequences, and she has to set things right for everyone's sake. Skylar's parents withhold a secret from her that puts her in danger, but they do it for what they consider to be good reasons. She disobeys her parents, but has to deal with the consequences. She and her friends have to face their fears to conquer the monsters and save the day, and they find that once they've done that, their newfound confidence spills over into other parts of their lives as well. Monster hunters use ray guns and containment units to capture monsters, who are seen as clouds of smoke, disembodied heads, and finally fully bodied people. Characters are often in peril as they face down the creatures or are threatened by them. Multiple chase scenes in which monsters trail terrified teens.
