From the Publisher
Here is a brilliant new kind of anthology. The editor presented students with the most popular stories published in the last several years. Then he said, "Choose the best, choose the ones that grip you in a vise of excitement and won't let you go, the ones that leave you with a sense of mystery and strangeness, the ones that rock you with laughter, the ones that really mean something to you as young adult." The result is the brightest, freshest, most original collection of proven popular stories published in decades.
