High school meets classic horror in this YA contemporary twist on Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Welcome to Hollow Pines, Texas, where high school is truly horrifying.
Cassidy Hyde is NOT having a good year. Her boyfriend cheated on her, killed her best friend's date during homecoming, and was then murdered in turn by a serial killer―and that's not even counting that one thing that no one knows about. (But Cassidy doesn't like to think about that.) The point is, anyone in her situation would be a little depressed by recent events, and you can't blame a girl for needing a little bit of help. That's where Sunshine comes in. This new experimental drug makes Cassidy feel like everything is good and she's the golden girl once again. A little memory loss feels like a small price to pay to get her life back. And the fact that boys are once again going missing (boys who Cassidy does NOT want to remember) has NOTHING to do with anything! Right?
Thus begins Chandler Baker's Teen Hyde, a standalone volume in the High School Horror series.
Praise for Teen Hyde:
"Improves on the solid scares of Teen Frankenstein, making this new and topical for any teen collection." ―Booklist
"The revenge story is unmatchable for drama." ―The Bulletin
Praise for Teen Frankenstein:
"A dose of atmospheric horror." ―Publishers Weekly
"There's a lot of humor―especially in Adam's not-too-successful attempts at imitating teen behavior. Tor is a prickly, unintentionally abrasive character whom some readers will find downright refreshing." ―Kirkus Reviews
"This offers some scares as well as a strangely compelling protagonist. Recommend to fans of Shelley’s original and teens ready for more intrigue than R. L. Stine’s Fear Street series has to offer." ―Booklist
"In this trilogy opener, Baker takes the essence of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; throws in heaps of high school drama; mystery, and murder; and then sets it in the small town of Hollow Pines, TX." ―School Library Journal
