Praise for the Love is Hell authors: "Riveting and dark: I love this tale of a smart, tough girl who walks the razor's edge between an ancient fairy curse and her future" Tamora Pierce on Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely. "Laurie Faria Stolarz has captured perfectly the angst and folly of the teenage world." www.teenreads.com Praise for Prom Nights From Hell: "With edgy writing designed to hook and captivate even the most reluctant of readers, each story is filled with strong, appealing characters who work their magic on the senses by appearing to be strong, daring, and passionate. Readers are taken on an exhilarating ride through the terrifying side of an otherwise common event, and the mood is cleverly sustained with an aura of fast-paced writing."

Book Review: Love is Hell by Melissa Marr - Reviewed by Aik (06 Jun 2011)
Sleeping with the Spirit by Laurie Faria Stolarz: I started off with this story, feeling very excited. I had read Stolarz's Deadly Little Secret not long ago and loved it to pieces. But I found Sleeping with the Spirit boring and predictable. This is definitely not one of Stolarz's best works.
Stupid Perfect World by Scott Westerfeld: This one was even worse. I never really finished it. While most people has a liking for this particular story, I found myself confused and clueless about the whole thing. Sorry, Scott, I really love your Uglies series but Stupid Perfect World is not for me!
Thinner Than Water by Justine Larbalestier: Unexpectedly, I found myself enjoying this story more than the previous two. Thinner Than Water is downright beautiful, bone-chilling and treacherous. Well done, Larbalestier!
Fan Fictions by Gabrielle Zevin: Fan Fictions somehow reminds me of a short story written by Anthony Horowitz in The Complete Horowitz...
