"Lively, eclectic and surprising." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune

Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket, author of the enormously popular young adult series A Series of Unfortunate Events, takes over as editor for this volume. He will work with the students of 826 Valencia and 826 Michigan writing labs to compile new fiction, nonfiction, poetry, comics, and other category-defying gems, ensuring that "if you need to fall in love with reading again -- or just want a reminder that high school students deserve a lot more than their reading lists give them -- then this is the book for you" (Bust).
