Master of the macabre David Lubar turns his attention to dark and twisted tales for teens with Extremities: Stories of Death, Murder, and Revenge

A group of high school girls takes revenge on their sadistic gym teacher in the most fitting way possible. Two stowaways find themselves on a ship for the dead. An ancient predator stalks the wrong victim. Here are thirteen tales of death, murder, and revenge from the fertile and febrile imagination of master storyteller David Lubar—his first story collection for the teen audience.
When I received this book in the mail for review from Tor Teen, I didn't know what to expect from it in all honesty. I thought at first it would be something I might enjoy reading. And I was right, I finished this book in a day. I don't think I ever read a book that fast.

Remember when you had to write short stories for your English/Literature class? Well, Lubar writes a series of short stories, 13 to be exact, in this great book of Extremities: Stories of Death, Murder, and Revenge. They are not only entertaining to read but also horrifying a little gruesome. Some stories are not for the faint at heart.

I enjoyed reading some of the stories in this great book. They range from Science Fiction Horror to Realistic Horror. One of the stories even reminded me of something you might see on the cult favorite television show from the 90's, Buffy. This book is not for everyone, but I definitely would recommend this book to anyone 14 and older who love horror and a good scare.
