Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This takeoff on teen-horror novels is funny, mocking, and a surefire hit…A clever twist at the end delivers a befitting resolution. The fun is in the vapid thinking of the girls, the trendy teen scenes, and the parody of YA actions and dialogue. This hilarious farce should have teen-horror fans screaming with laughter.” School Library Journal
“The versatile Newbery Medalist sets off on a different-and wacky-tack with this spoof of young adult horror novels. Lavishly dosed with comic hyperbole, his plot is good for some chuckles…Fleischman’s take-off is clever.” Publishers Weekly
“Fleischman has written a funny, clever book…Using a combination of wicked wit and old-fashioned physical comedy, Fleischman manages to make the abhorrent triumvirate’s coping with the ravages of old age ludicrous enough to be laughable, and his characters are true originals…There’ll be plenty who’ll love it and be sorry when the rapid-fire high jinks are over and repugnant Danielle is well on her way to her just reward.” Booklist
