My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The title alone was enough to get me to pull this off the shelf and give it a read. A short short stories collection that turned out to be a nice surprise. All of the stories had a teacher and/or a school in them yet the variety of the stories were wide. The stories ranged everywhere from a relationship between a boy and his step-father (a teacher) to a horror story that really sets a mood of terror for some kids in a school after dark. As with most books of short stories, there were some hits and some misses. Many of the stories I found to be just so-so,even though the writing was still great, but a couple of the stories really made this book worth a read and the stories really stuck with me, especially the horror story.

As for recommending it I would suggest that if you run across it pick it up and enjoy, but I wouldn’t go as far as to suggest that you run out and buy it right away.
