School of Fear series by Gitty Daneshvari (2010-2011)
This series is not for the faint of heart. Funny, enjoyable, and sometimes downright gross, School of Fear follows four children who are whisked away to a private school to help them overcome their paralyzing fears. Lots of twists and turns will keep readers at the edge of their seats, and the characters’ many quirks are good for lots of laughs. Book 3 in the series (School of Fear 3: The Final Exam) was released in October. I haven’t been able to read it yet, but I’m hoping to soon so I can see how the series wraps up in the last book of the trilogy. The is interactive and lots of fun. Kids who love the series would have a blast with all the different activities and videos. FYI: It’s also rumored that the School of Fear series has been picked up to be a major motion picture. (Suggested reading level: Grade 5 and up)
