How many of you like horror stories, the kind that keep you thinking for hours, or up at night pondering what exactly is under your bed?
Then this book is for you. Each one of the tales in this short story collection takes an idea from a classic novel, song, or movie and updates it in a modern setting. Part of the fun of the book is trying to figure out what the authors were drawing from when they wrote their stories.
You’ll meet Marnie, a studious but unpopular girl that the clique has dubbed Marnie Monster. But then Damien, the fascinatingly mysterious new boy, takes an interest in her after she expresses sympathy for Frankenstein’s monster in English class. But who is Damien really, and what does he want?
Then there’s Cassidy, a young woman who adored Alice in Wonderland as a child. Follow her story through parallel child and teenage experiences as she tells us about her relationship with the March Hare, a mysterious being who lives in the woods near her town.
Lest you think that all our stories revolve around girls, let me introduce you to some of our monster boys. Like Wolfboy, a young man who manages his sleepless nights by endlessly texting young women he’s met online, much to the consternation of his very conservative mother. Or Richard, a boy haunted by the closet in his bedroom that won’t ever seem to open. Or will it?
Looking for some delicious chills and thrills? Then give Slasher Girls and Monster Boys a try.
