Includes a never-before-published Sookie Stackhouse story!

What could be scarier than the first day of school? How about a crash course in the paranormal from Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, editors of Home Improvement: Undead Edition? Your worst school nightmares—taking that math test you never studied for, finding yourself naked in school assembly, not knowing which door to enter—will pale in comparison to these thirteen original stories that take academic anxiety to whole new realms.

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris’s story, "Playing Possum," Sookie Stackhouse brings enough birthday cupcakes for her nephew's entire class but finds she's one short when the angry ex-boyfriend of the school secretary shows up.

When her guardian, Kate Daniels, sends her undercover to a school for exceptional children, teenaged Julie learns an all-new definition of "exceptional," in New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews's "Magic Tests."

For those who like fangs with their forensics, New York Times bestselling author Nancy Holder offers "VSI," in which FBI agent Claire is tested as never before in a school for Vampire Scene Investigation.

And in New York Times bestselling author Thomas Sniegoski's "The Bad Hour," Remy Chandler and his dog Marlowe find evil unleashed in an obedience school.

You'll need more than an apple to stave off the creatures in these and nine other stories. Remember your first lesson: resistance is fruitless!

Includes stories by: ILONA ANDREWS, AMBER BENSON, RHYS BOWEN, MIKE CAREY, CHARLAINE HARRIS, DONALD HARSTAD, STEVE HOCKENSMITH, NANCY HOLDER, FAITH HUNTER, TONI L.P. KELNER, MARJORIE LIU, JONATHAN MABERRY, THOMAS SNIEGOSKI

Listener Opinions

    " OK, here's the deal. This is one of those books full of short stories by a variety of authors. I read the ones by Charlaine Harris and Ilona Andrews. They were both good and interesting to me because I read their series. The Harris story was about Sookie & Hunter. The Andrews story was about Julie. These stories wouldn't be as interesting to me without the knowledge of their whole worlds. Mostly because the premise is school settings and there is no romance. I like a little romance with my mystery or drama or action. I didn't read the rest of the stories, other than these 2 authors. "

    " Just read Charlaine Harris's Sookie story "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bev | 2/9/2014

    " Specific to the Charlaine Harris "Sookie" short story - it was a completely mundane short story about Sookie visiting Hunter's school and anticipating a shooting because of her telepathy. The characters (even Sookie) were totally flat, the ending predictable. This could have been a story about any characters, anywhere. "

    " Only read the Sookie story. Pretty good, was nice to see Hunter again. "

    " I really only read the short by Ilona Andrews, but that one was fabulous. We find out what happened to one of the characters introduced in one of the other short stories. If you're a fan of the Kate Daniels series, you'll enjoy this short. "

    " The Sookie story was great. The Harstad tale Academy Fieldtrip was ok. Bowen's Low School would make a good movie. The rest were meh. None really held my interest. "
