They only meant to scare him. Mr. Griffin is the strictest teacher at Del Norte High, with a penchant for endless projects and humiliating his students. Even straight-A student Susan can't believe how mean he is to the charismatic Mark Kinney. So when her crush asks Susan to help a group of students teach a lesson of their own, she goes along. After all, it's a harmless prank, right? But things don't go according to plan. When one "accident" leads to another, people begin to die. Susan and her friends must face the awful truth: one of them is a killer. Leave the lights on when reading this classic thriller! This new edition features modernized text and a new introduction by Lois Duncan, the master of teen horror.

This was a little reminiscent of We Need to talk about Kevin in some ways with some twisted teens. A plan to kidnap a teacher goes awry and sinister. Definitely kept me interested and curious.

1. I remember being so scared reading the tagged book above as a teenager. Now I stick with psychological thrillers that scare me more about people than truly scare me. 2. The Sixth Sense- yes I realize most people don‘t consider this a scary movie but I had nightmares for months after watching 3. Apple Cider and Football 4. Wasn‘t super hyped on Girl On The Train

This was a quick and good read. It was touching to read how misguided perceptions can ruin lives. Alas, poor Mr Griffin. :(

BookishMarginalia I loved Lois Duncan & read everything she wrote when I was a teen! 3y
scripturient @BookishMarginalia I had somehow never come across her till I found this at the library. I will probably check out her other books as well. :) 3y

Getting comfy on the sofa while it's face-numbingly cold outside. I still need to read up on the whole Hygge thing, but I suppose this comes close already. 😊📚🛋☕️

So I vaguely remember seeing this movie and it was ehh. Years later realized it was a book I read in my formative years and that it deserved a reread. Not so much fun. These kids were truly disastrous. Instead of studying hard, they instead decide to scare their English teacher. You can see my original review on good reads if you are interested. Themes still hold today. #octphotochallenge #disasterouskids

AWahle I loved Lois Duncan's books when I was in high school. The girls from The Daughters of Eve also belong in the #disasterouskids category. 3y
Smangela Loved this one too! Lois Duncan was my first foray into anything scary 3y

It's a different experience reading this as an adult but it still works in some ways, especially the last few chapters. RIP Lois Duncan

One of the authors who fed my insatiable hunger for reading as a young child--and one of the reasons I still remain hungry for more. #riploisduncan
