Think bungee jumping is a thrill? Meet a kid who skydives down the funnel of a tornado.

Why not visit the shop in the local mall that sells alternate universes in little bottles. It's a lot of fun. Unless, of course, you open the little black bottle labeled "thermonuclear war." Now that could be a real blast.

Seriously one of the most underrated Neal Shusterman books. I think that it's rare to find an author who can write long series/trilogies and short stories well and while I do enjoy his more complete novels better, these stories are amazing. Each story engages the reader so quickly with its creative,unique ideas and themes. I love this series of short stories and wish more people would read them.

I had no idea what to expect from this book when I first picked it up. I guess I gave it to much credit when I saw "Stories to Shred Your Head", though most story's were interesting I never stopped and thought "darn that's totally crazy!"

And then their is special deliverance: a rather short section compared to the rest for which I couldn't care less for. In all I ...more
