Prom Nights from Hell – Various Authors

Far from gauzy, rose-colored clichés, the prom nights depicted in this anthology are surreal, scary, and often populated with monsters and zombies. A well-known author for young adults contributes each of the five long stories. In Meg Cabot’s, “The Exterminator’s Daughter,” a high-school student chases down a vampire before he can claim his next victim on prom night. In Stephenie Meyer’s “Hell on Earth,” a prom is nearly destroyed by warring biblical demons; then dreamy half-angel Gabe comes to the rescue. The tone in each story wavers between glib camp and chilling terror, just like a teen horror movie.

This book is FUN!  If you’ve ever thought that prom wasn’t everything you wanted it to be, then try these stories and see that it could have been so much worse!  This book is also good because the stories are short and easy to read.  – Jessica, Teen Librarian
