Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They only meant to scare him.

Mr. Griffin is the strictest teacher at Del Norte High, with a penchant for endless projects and humiliating his students. Even straight-A student Susan can't believe how mean he is to the charismatic Mark Kinney. So when her crush asks Susan to help a group of students teach a lesson of their own, she goes along. After all, it's a harmless prank, right?

But things don't go according to plan. When one "accident" leads to another, people begin to die. Susan and her friends must face the awful truth: one of them is a killer.

Leave the lights on when reading this classic thriller! This new edition features modernized text and a new introduction by Lois Duncan, the master of teen horror.

Synopsis:

In this unsettling story, a group of high school students thinks their English teacher treats them too harshly--so they abduct Mr. Griffin to teach him a lesson. But the plan soon goes awry. This classic is reissued with modernized text and a new Introduction by the author.
