Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this exciting collection, bestselling authors Meg Cabot (How to Be Popular), Kim Harrison (A Fistful of Charms), Michele Jaffe (Bad Kitty), Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), and Lauren Myracle (ttyl) take bad prom nights to a whole new level — a paranormally bad level. Wardrobe malfunctions and two left feet don't hold a candle to discovering your date is the Grim Reaper — and he isn't here to tell you how hot you look.

From angels fighting demons to a creepy take on getting what you wish for, these five stories will entertain better than any DJ in a bad tux. No corsage or limo rental necessary. Just good, scary fun.

Synopsis:

'

In this brand-new collection of short stories, Aidan Chambers explores moments of truth, when a character or an event suddenly reveals an often-surprising meaning: A girl loses her humanity when she takes a summer job as a theme-park character; a boy tries to save a girl from a fiery death, only to discover the same event happened one hundred years before. And the titular story, in which an innocent game takes a fatal turn, will haunt the reader for a long time. 

These provocative stories beautifully lend themselves to discussion, and once again Chambers treats us to his fiercely intelligent, finely crafted prose and his incisive understanding of the wonderings of young people on the verge of adulthood.

The prom season is just starting; memories are waiting to be made by all who attend the prom. With the dress, hair, make-up, shoes and nails all perfect for the night to remember. The girls expect to be admired for the boys they date to the way they glide to a slow dance that is until the dress starts to fall apart. The impression of a grand entrance is marred when you fall out of the limo. You best friend is stalking your date, sure he is the wrong guy for you, she is willing to shot him to make her point. Captured by the stories from your favorite authors, you will be disappointed when this prom date ends.
