Publisher's Summary

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.

Classic thriller for young adults, updated for '10

I remember reading this book almost 12 years ago in Middle School and falling in love with it. I've looked for it on audible before, and it is finally available. It's truly a great book, and only reminds me the butchery that Hollywood has done to the likes of Lois Duncan. Of special note; this audiobook performance has a few updates that I feel were a little unnecessary to appeal to younger audiences: they mention googling, iPods and other modern references that surely were not even conceived when this book was written in '78. But it is still a great book! Give it a listen!

Fantastic book!!

I loved this book. I had to read it for a banned book project at my school. I don't think it should be banned.I really think of you are looking for an intertaining suspenseful book to take up some extra time this is the book for you.
