Review quote

Praise for Slasher Girls & Monster Boys "If your idea of an excellent summer night is telling ghost stories around the campfire, you'll be jumping for (horrific) joy over Slasher Girls & Monster Boys." Bustle Terrifying and new . . . There s nary a clunker in the collection this is satisfying, disturbing horror for the modern YA audience. Publishers Weekly Murderous neighbors, creepy bathtubs, and lots of blood . . . Full of thrills and chills [and] gross, creepy fun. Kirkus Reviews "This killer collection will satisfy any thriller junkie." Booklist Online "Satisfyingly diverse and compelling. . . . The majority of the protagonists are female [but] not one is a helpless victim. Many contributors subvert and complicate the roles of protagonist and antagonist, keeping readers on their toes . . . After encountering the horrors here, variously supernatural and disturbingly human, readers may want to leave the lights on. The Horn Book Will scare, thrill, and terrify." VOYA A ton of terrifying mini thrillers that take inspiration from classic stories. There s a bit of supernatural in here, some gore-filled-horror, terrifying creatures . . . something for everybody. Book Riot Praise for the authors: April Tucholke's Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea "Deliciously creepy." TheAtlanticWire.com* A stunning debut with complex characters, an atmospheric setting, and a distinct voice . . . Tucholke has real talent. VOYA, starred review Stefan Bachmann's The Peculiar Richly realized . . . accomplished . . . This is a story young fantasy buffs are sure to enjoy. New York Times Book Review Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone Mesmerizing . . . Bardugo s set up is shiver-inducing, of the delicious variety. This is what fantasy is for. New York Times Kendare Blake's Anna Dressed in Blood * "Abundantly original, marvelously inventive and enormous fun, this can stand alongside the best horror fiction out there. We demand sequels." Kirkus, starred review Marie Lu's The Young Elites * Lu pivots from the coming of age via romance formula to pry apart the many emotions that pass under the rubric of love . . . there are no safe places where the pressures of betrayal, death threats, and rejection aren t felt. Publishers Weekly, starred review* Readers should prepare to be captivated. Booklist, starred review* A must for fans of . . . totally immersive fantasies. Kirkus, starred review Marie Lu's Legend trilogy: New York Times Bestsellers"Legend doesn t merely survive the hype, it deserves it. New York Times Megan Shepherd's The Madman's Daughter * The fast-paced book is rife with excitement, romance, and intrigue. SLJ, starred review Nova Ren Suma's The Walls Around Us [An] Intricately plotted psychological horror story. New York Times Book Review [A] supernatural page-turner . . . This stark character classification isn t a flaw, but rather, a demonstration of Suma s fantastic writing. Her images, even the horrible ones, linger like dust and glitter after an epic stage performance. The Boston Globe Cat Winters's In the Shadow of Blackbirds * "A story of the breaking point between sanity and madness, delivered in a straightforward and welcoming teen voice." Booklist, starred review"
