Title: Hall Pass by Robert Hawks
Summary: I have to get rid of the bodies… They’re clawing back to the surface.
The hall pass is a privilege, but Mr Elliot gives it out freely. His students are the problem kids – they need to roam.
Melissa has roamed too far and stumbled upon a gruesome truth.
Now she knows what happened to the others.
Join your classmates, Melissa.
Tagline: Don’t be too sure you want to get out of class.
Notes: I will use “Bad Guy” throughout my reviews to refer to the anonymous killer/prankster/whatever. Doesn’t mean it’s a guy. I will now refer to the bad guy as “Muffin Man” because of The Mall.
I had never read this before, but I do like Nightmares, because they tend to have an actual bodycount and crimes that go beyond gaslighting (which is pretty bad when you’re the victim, but when you’re the reader and have been sold on a murder-death-rampage, and all you get is an abusive boyfriend and a few poison pen letters, it’s a bit of a letdown). Also, Nightmares is the series that gave us the ISUZU TROOPER, BITCHES, so there is that.
[Wing: I had never read this before either. Now I have. It is certainly something.]
