There's a new boy at Shadyside High School, and he's stolen the hearts of all the girls. Good-looking, athletic Ross Gabriel is the kind of guy that every girl wants to date-including best friends Janie, Eve, and Faith. They've even made a bet on which one of them he'll go out with first. Ross dates a lot of girls-and one by one, they're all murdered. It looks like going out with Ross means flirting with a gruesome and horrifying fate. So when Ross asks Janie out, she isn't sure what she should do. Will her dream date turn into a nightmare?

With true-to-life teenage characters and clever, hair-raising plots, his best-selling books have captured the imagination of young people across the nation and attracted thousands of reluctant readers to library bookshelves.
