Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note: Stay / Erica Waters -- The tallest poppy / Chloe Gong -- Loved by all, save one / Tori Bovalino -- One-lane bridge / Hannah Whitten -- Ghost on the shore / Allison Saft -- Petrified / Olivia Chadha -- Third burn / Courtney Gould -- It stays with you / Aden Polydoros -- Truth or dare / Alex Brown -- The burning one / Shakira Toussaint.
Summary, etc.: A cemetery full of the restless dead. A town so wicked it has already burned twice, with the breath of the third fire looming. A rural, isolated bridge with a terrifying monster waiting for the completion of its summoning ritual. A lake that allows the drowned to return, though they have been changed by the claws of death. These are the shadowed, liminal spaces where the curses and monsters lurk, refusing to be forgotten.

    The incredible cover art by Evangeline Gallagher will be enticement enough to get many teens to crack the spine of this horror anthology. Once inside, they'll find a haunting assortment of tales, though not all truly fit the bill as folk horror. Ghost stories and urban legends feature prominently, but a few do successfully tick the folk-horror box. "Petrified," by Olivia Chadha, is among the latter; it follows a group of teens raised in a cultlike commune who exact revenge for a friend's sexual assault. "It Stays with You," by Aden Polydoros, is a standout that riffs on the childhood game Bloody Mary. Chloe Gong explores a malevolent house in "The Tallest Poppy," and a cemetery's restless dead focus their energy on the teen girl who has been neglecting their graves in Erica Waters' "Stay." There are 10 stories in total, and it's a solid bunch that dishes out chills and simultaneously explores the pressures and heightened emotions of adolescence. Grades 8-12.
