I was given this collection of short stories by the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Students Sold Us Secrets by Lee J. Mavin introduces us to a nebulous author that reminds us to be cautious around students who can be evil, manipulative, and downright dangerous. Then we launch into a set of stories about individual students. We range from the beautiful and popular kids who had a downfall and are getting revenge, to a bully protector who goes to great lengths (and for a great sum of m

Would I read it again - Yes
Plot - Well organised, intriguing and disturbing
Characters - individual, intriguing, scary
Movie Potential - Yes
Ease of reading - Very easy, good flow

The first line will have you hooked!

Let’s start with the bad things - There is a minor issue in that no matter how I format my Kindle, side on or right way up, the last line of the Warning is missing. There are also a few spelling errors or

The Students told us secrets is a collection of short stories that are written in the form of journal entries by students.
The narrator is an anonymous teacher who received these texts and compiled them in the process of evaluating student behavior of the generation. Behavior against each other, and behavior towards those in power such as teachers.
While this is a work of fiction, it is horrifying that many students, I’m sure, actually have the thought processes close to the ones in this collect

This is a freaky collection of twelve short stories all linked by one common theme, all the narrators are sick and twisted teenagers, living there 'one child policy' lives. I wrote this back in 2010 and now it has been re-edited, revised and republished by ASJ Publishers (hopefully more on the way!)

Blurb:

No one is safe! The school has become a war-zone and the innocent are turning fast! A brave and nameless teacher has collected some awful and disturbing documents from the some ghastly students.

I enjoyed this book. Sometimes scary this that happen in some high schools. You just have to feel so scared for their teachers. Most of them you would just feel such sorrow for. It shows the the terrible stories that happen to the students. They are most crazy and disruptive. And finally it shows a amazing report of this things that happen. Just a total amazing thing for me as I went to a all girls Catholic school who had nothing like this

The Students Sold Us Secrets

by Lee J. Mavin.

Before I begin this review, I would like to start off by saying I believe in absolute transparency. Therefore, I should make it clear that both Lee and I are published by ASJ Publishing. This has, however, completely influenced in no way influenced my review.
Alright, technicalities over!

To officially begin the review, I will explain to the reader how I read Lee J. Mavin’s short stories: I decided to put myself in the mind of a young adult. That’s who h

These storys are just creepy and somewhat believable. Its written as though its a report from a teacher keeping tabs on the students.
The most disturbing part is I can actually belive some of this stuff happening. Kids can be vicious when they want to be. For example the boy that takes revenge on the school for not building a wheelchair accessible school. Myabe not everything his did but parts of it.
Theres also some that are just so out there such as "rewritten history". This one is so ridiculou

Evil kids

Finally after reading the second book first, I got the first edition of Lee Mavin’s scary books,"The Students Sold us Secrets".

The scary short stories really going into your minds of madmen and killers. Yes, it’s a psychological thriller. I think it’s more than that. It thrills you to read the stories if you want it or not, because you have to know how it will end.

So keep reading, be scared out your socks.

Great writing

***REVIEWED FOR SARAH & KIRSTY'S BOOK REVIEWS***

This is completely different to other books I have read but it’s fantastic! I enjoyed each short story and the loved that I was to delve into one when I wanted to read and didn’t have time to read a full length novel. Each story was short, dark, unique, exciting and perfect! A very good book from Lee. 5 stars

I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed reading this. One of the stories about how a bully is dealt with standing out as the best section of the book. Given how much I did like it, I wouldnt hesitate to read other writings from this author.

The Students Sold us Secrets

It’s your average typical high school. Except with a sinister twist and without the musical.

SO, Curtains closed and lights off...


Sorry. Tickets are sold out for the musical. Come back some other day. “We apologize for any inconvenience caused.”

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).

(This review may contain spoilers).

School doesn't exactly have many happy memories for me, so I was pretty sure I'd be entertained by a book with the darker sides of students - and I was right.

I can't say that I liked any of the stories, as such. They were too dark to end up on my favourite short stories list. But they were definitely entertaining. They were also the kind of stories that will probably stay with me a while after readi

Entertaining, sometimes morbid, sometimes funny and sometimes unnerving, Lee Mavin's debut novel reads like a 1980's slasher film feels to watch; if it really happened, it would be awful, but it doesn't, so it's funny.
