book cover

These 14 stories deal with individual trauma, not the type of horror most young adults think of when they see the word. In the past, the real horror in horror stories took the form of aliens from outer space or terrifying swamp monsters. Today's teens face horrors that are closer to home: guns, alcohol abuse, eating disorders and bullies.

Qvamp says:

This collection focuses on the problems that teens face today. While some of the stories are quite creative, the book can get a bit preachy.

One story 'The Night is Yours Alone' by Michael Rowe deals with the problem of a gay teen being picked on for what he is and learning how to cope.
