Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1
    In Adler's inclusive anthology, 13 YA authors honor Edgar Allan Poe's pioneering work in mystery, horror, and science fiction with retellings that emphasize diverse characters, settings, and genres. The most effective stories keep the spirit and themes of Poe's originals while doing something entirely unique. Tessa Gratton, in "Night-Tide," keeps the dreamy anguish of "Annabelle Lee" but reimagines the romance as between two girls summering at a seaside resort. Two authors retell Poe's C. Auguste Dupin mysteries with vastly different styles: Emily Lloyd-Jones sets her take on "The Purloined Letter" in a technologically advanced future in which the titular letter is an implanted ID, while Rin Chupeco's urban fantasy rendition of "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" is peppered with Filipinx LGBTQ+ slang. Tiffany Jackson's "It's Carnival!" ("The Cask of Amontillado") and Stephanie Kuehn's "Happy Days, Sweetheart" ("The Tell-Tale Heart") are straightforward but satisfying female-­centered revenge stories. Several popular authors have stand-out stories in this anthology, and Poe's original tales are reprinted at the back. Poe fans new and old will find stories to appreciate here. Grades 9-12.
