Librarian Book Review: Slasher Girls & Monster Boys stories selected by April Genevieve Tucholke

https://khcpl.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1605870117_slasher_girls_amp_monster_boysSummary:
​This short story collection contains a number of horror stories from well known YA authors. From creepy birds to tragic tea parties, this collection has it all.

Review:
Normally, short story collections are hit and miss. You get really great stories, and then some not so great stories. This collection is different. While all the stories are greatly varied, they are all wonderful. Each story is inspired by film or classic horror tales. This is definitely for the horror fan as some of the stories are a bit disturbing, but fantastic. This is one of the best short story collections I have read in a while.​

Cautions for Sensitive Readers:
​This one can be more than a bit disturbing. There are stories of abduction, cutting off body parts, and many other nightmare scenarios. Be warned, this one is amazing, but could be disturbing to the sensitive reader.
