Welcome to Cliffside High, the school of your nightmares. It's run by the Huns, a ruthless clique of rich students - and, as poor Charity Chase discovers, messing with them can be murder. There's Tiffany, avid reader of every beauty magazine going; Brooke, desperate for a date; Danielle, Al Capone in Miss America's body, with her sights set firmly on millionaire's son Drew. Unfortunately, like every other boy at Cliffside, Drew only has eyes for Helga, the ravishing new student from Norway...wherever that may be. As far as Danielle's concerned, Helga could be from another world. In fact, if she doesn't lay off Drew, she just might be...Getting rid of her ought to be as easy as taking candy off a helpless old lady. Only...something weird is happening to Danielle and her friends; something much nastier than the horror stories she loves to read; something that can only be described as a fate totally worse than death...

Publishers Weekly, 1995-09-18 The versatile Newbery Medalist sets off on a different-and wacky-tack with this spoof of young adult horror novels. Lavishly dosed with comic hyperbole, his plot is good for some chuckles-and many groans. Here goes: physically flawless Danielle, thoroughly vacuous Tiffany and their lumpy sidekick, Brook are all "Huns," those privileged students at Cliffside High whose parents have struck it rich enough to reside in Hundred Palms Estates. The ruthless trio has already dispatched one outsider: the year before, Charity Chase (a non-Hun) cozied up to Drew (a hunky Hun on whom Danielle has designs), and sent her scurrying off a cliff... to her death. Now Helga, an ethereal exchange student from Norway, has the misfortune to catch Drew's eye. Meanwhile, the three vain girls are experiencing horrifying symptoms of accelerated physical aging. Is Helga the ghost of Charity, returned to avenge herself? What could explain the girls' deterioration? Fleischman's take-off is clever, but its humor is strictly one-note. Ages 14-17. (Oct.)
