Synopsis

Extremities by David Lubar

A group of high school girls takes revenge on their sadistic gym teacher in the most fitting way possible. Two stowaways find themselves on a ship for the dead. An ancient predator stalks the wrong victim. Here are thirteen tales of death, murder, and revenge from the fertile and febrile imagination of master storyteller David Lubar-his first story collection for the teen audience.

Reviews

Ever had the request for a scary book to read? Without a doubt, Lubar's thirteen tales of death, murder, and revenge will scare the pants off its readers. This book is the definition of horror stories, and will have readers cowering in fright. --VOYA

Definitely not for the faint of heart or easily scared, Lubar's latest collection of the macabre and cruel is designed to make the hairs on the back of one's neck stand up--and they do. [...] Lubar employs savvy language skills that milk every possible drop of horror out of a few words in this compulsively readable collection. --Booklist

This book will talk itself right off the shelves, and reluctant readers will devour it. --School Library Journal on The Curse of the Campfire Weenies
