Katherine Helms | 1 comments Hi, I'm going nuts trying to remember a book I remember reading and being pretty nauseated by in the summer of 2007 or thereabouts. As I recall, it was a YA fiction book of scary/gross stories - not sure if it was by multiple authors or just one. The story that's stuck in my head is about a kid who basically roasts himself alive by repeatedly, mistakenly, applying some kind of cooking oil to his skin instead of sunscreen. It's possible that it wasn't the kid himself, but the kid observing this happening to someone else. Not sure why I want to revisit something so nasty, but it's driving me crazy. Thanks!
