Stine presents 13 stories of suspense and horror in this collection by the writers of the 'hottest' names in thriller writing. (I wonder if he chose 13 because it is sometimes known as an unlucky number?) Each story begins rather blandly, but builds to the end with much suspense and/or horror. My favorites are' Shadow Children' and 'The Poison Ring.' Another realm is introduced in Shadow Children where shadow versions can replace real children. In The Poison Ring, a girl is sent on a trail of deception and danger. All of the other stories are very, very haunting.

Commenter: Aj, grade 9
I first read this is 4th grade, and I think I have reread this every year of my life. This is my favorite book. And Fever has inspired me to read every book by Laurie Halse Anderson. She is such a terrific writer. This book will make you think in a totally new way and will really inspire you to read historical fiction. It isn't boring in the least and it is kid friendly. I think this book should be a requirement to get out of school, everyone should read such a great book. It's my absolute favorite. Happy Reading!
