Fear: 13 Stories of Suspense and Horror, Edited by R.L. Stine
I wasn't too impressed with the first two stories, but the third one, "Suckers" by Suzanne Weyn, had me chuckling out loud--it was great! But, the rest were just ehhhh. I know the R.L. Stine audience is a bit younger than high school, but I just don't think Fear is appropriate for these stories. Meg Cabot's story was a good superhero romance story, but it wasn't scary. "Piney Power" by F. Paul Wilson created a cool setting and interesting characters. "Jeepers Peepers" by Ryan Brown had me re-reading sections to see if I missed something--it was the creepiest.
