Life's a beach... and then you're undead?

In this must-have collection, five of today's hottest writers - Libba Bray (A Great and Terrible Beauty), Cassandra Clare (City of Bones), Claudia Gray (Evernight), Maureen Johnson (13 Little Blue Envelopes), and Sarah Mlynowski (Bras & Broomsticks) - tell supernatural tales of vacations gone awry.

Lost luggage is only mildly unpleasant compared to bunking with a witch who holds a grudge. And a sunburn might be embarrassing and painful, but it doesn't last as long as a curse. Of course, even in the most hellish of situations, love can thrive.... From light and funny to dark and creepy, these stories have something for everyone. You definitely won't want to leave this collection at home!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sase | 2/17/2014

    " I didn't think I was going to like the first story (with all of the 'first time' business) but kept reading and ended up really liking it at the end. The second and fourth stories were both very fun and interesting. The third story was good but I had a hard time getting past certain things. The last story started out strong but I ended up not really liking it. Overall it was a fun and easy book to read. "

    " Five stories, no waiting. Some were very enjoyable, some were just enjoyable, all were a lot of fun. (I admit to a special fondness for Claudia Gray's offering, which didn't go where I expected, and delighted me therefore.) Recommended to anyone who likes modern YA supernatural fiction, anthologies, summer stories, or any combination of the above. "

    " This was a fun collection of stories. There are some great authors included in the anthology... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 12/31/2013

    " All of the stories were good, except for the last one. I thought that the last one had a bad plot and the whole thing was just boring to read. I enjoyed the 4 other stories though :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Belinda | 12/26/2013

    " quick read, enjoyed the "supernatural element in all the stories. I would say I enjoyed the Libba Bray story the best, The Law ... was a close second. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phoebe | 12/24/2013

    " Well, this book was OK but not great. Some of the stories were worthy of a little over 3 stars, but altogether the book desearves about a 2.5. Sorry to the people out there who liked this book. Usually I don't rate low, but what else can I say??? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 12/22/2013

    " The anthology was a fun summer read and I liked Libba Bray's and Claudia Gray's stories quite a bit. "

    " Some stories were cheesy, some were scary, some were just entertaining. Pretty quality book, especially on summer vacation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle Mcroberts | 9/22/2013

    " A great quick read. I love each of these authors and was thrilled to be able to take in their short stories. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenni | 5/3/2013

    " The reason it got a 2 star (the Ok-sign) was because of Maureen Johnson's story 'The law of suspects' which was creepy-too-good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hanna | 3/17/2013

    " I love it! Especially the 'Perfect World' part. The scene is from the future and they're studying the ways of living of the humans from the past. It's soo cool. =)) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Minishiva | 12/19/2012

    " Terrible collection, the only one that was good (I would rate it 4 stars) was Libba Bray's story it was creepy and the characters were believable. The rest of the stories seemed like really bad fan fiction.And what is up with Cassandra Clare and romance between siblings? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/17/2012

    " This book of short stories was good. Some of them could of been turned into a whole book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 10/9/2012

    " My favorites one were Cruisin' by Sarah Mlynowski and Nowhere Is Safe by Libba Bray. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 5/20/2012

    " OMG this book was AWESOME!!! If can't rad the whole thing then you at LEAST must read Law of Suspects It was totally creepy and there was a new surprise at every turn :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genevieve | 4/26/2012

    " A fun collection. Bray's was the last, and it was actually pretty scary, compared to the others. The first four were more comical, but Bray's was still fun as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ely | 1/6/2012

    " I enjoyed some of these stories- Claudia Gray's and Maureen Johnson's were my favourite. The other three were so-so. "
