This is book number 2 in the High School Horror series.
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 without counting the thing that no one knows about. (But Cassidy doesn't like to think about that.) The point is, anyone would be a little depressed and no one can blame her for looking for 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 contemporary twist on Robert Louis Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde, set in the town of Hollow Pines, Texas, where high school is truly horrifying.
Chandler Baker grew up in Florida, went to college in Pennsylvania, and studied law in Texas, where she now lives with her family and an ever-growing pile of books. Although she loves spinning tales with a touch of horror, she is a much bigger scaredy-cat than her stories would lead you to believe. In addition to the High School Horror series, Chandler is the author of the young adult novel, Alive.
Chandler Baker lives in Austin with her husband and toddler where she also works as a corporate attorney. She is the author of five young adult novels. Whisper Network is her adult debut.
"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." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A healthy dose of atmospheric horror." —Publishers Weekly
"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
"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
"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
