Firstly, the GR kindle synopsis is incorrect so please do not read it. Here is the correct synopsis--> Fake An Injury Day. Secondly, my mother always told me, "If I you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"..

. . . Ciao!

"this is hell and it's always Spirit Week here."

So, first things first. Before this series, I'd never even heard of Spirit Week. I searched the internet and tried to get an understanding of what it was. And then I tried to find the book. For a long long time, I wasn't able to buy it. But I waited patiently and finally got the message from the author that the book was live on Amazon.

I raced right over and bought it.

Like any good horror story fan, I read this book at night, in the dark on my kindl
I would love to read this book. Does anyone know where it can be purchased? Amazon and Barnes & Noble don't seem to have it.

Anyone....... Bueller?

I actually really really like the cover and the title, so that's why I went ahead and read this. I think the characters were pretty convincing, and they were fun. They felt like peeps I could've gone to school with. The plot was good to me so I'm satisfied after having read this. I like horror and YA, so I got what I wanted in this. I'm satisfied.

I received this book as a free ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I thought the story was interesting, and it was clever the way the author used a school tradition as popular as Spirit Week for the backdrop of this story. I can’t give too much away because the ARC was also in it’s “Alpha” phase, which means some minor changes may be made to the story before it’s all said and done.

In any event, as far as the characters in this, I really like the main character, Justine Dodd. I

I spent the night binging on this book! This book is was a great read, the illustrations helped me visualize the story. I love how the writer chose the name “Skinner” as the principle, it cracked me up, reminded me of a beloved character on TV. I also love how the story ramped up on the group’s concern over Carla, youth and friendship goes hand in hand and this gives me a warm fuzzy feeling despite the horrors that come next.

I’m not from the USA, so this story also gave me an alternative insight

I don't usually write book reviews so I'll make this one brief. Being in college (actaully I'm just a sophomore now, this kind of book made me remember what Spirit Week was like back in high school and how fun it was, while at the same time making it sort of scary. The plot points of the book made me think...What If?? The characters are interesting but at the same time they don't overshadow the main characters, which are obviously the Spirit Week days. This book was a short, quick read, which I ...more

This was a really enjoyable read and the premise I think could easily be adapted into a popular film - it's fast, dark, gritty and at its core very good and realistic dialogue between the teenage cast. The author has really found her niche writing for this age demography, with plenty of twists and turns which kept me engrossed until the final page.

While it is a YA horror it is never over-the-top or grotesque and the descriptions are excellent. A fun, pacey and perfect young adult book and I look

I thought the idea of centering a horror book around the idea of a school spirit week was a fun concept. I was excited to read it and was prepared for a spooky late night read.

Unfortunately the writing was very poor, there was no character development, the actual plot made little to no sense and the parts of the book that were somewhat entertaining to read came across as poor imitations of 80s slasher flicks.

Really just a mess of a book with a few interesting bits of imagery that quickly lose th
