Review quote

With contributions that range from frightening to romantic, action-driven to lyrical, there should be something here for everyone. -- School Library Journal The menace of darkness in these stories is...more campfire shivers than real danger, but that's precisely the appeal. -- ALA Booklist The collection's range of genres, from science fiction to vampire stories to realism, gives it broad appeal. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Saundra Mitchell has been a phone psychic, a car salesperson, a denture deliverer, and a layout waxer. She's dodged trains, endured basic training, and hitchhiked from Montana to California. She is also the author of Shadowed Summer and the Elementals series, and she always picks truth; dare is too easy.

Sarah Rees Brennan was born and raised in Ireland. After earning her master's in creative writing in New York and doing library work in Surrey, England, she has returned to Dublin, Ireland, to write.
