Summary
A girl wagers her soul in a sour-gummy-frog-eating contest with the devil. Love and a homemade coat rescue a boy from his fairyland jailers. A newly bitten teenage vampire uses the Internet to show the world just how uncool the "cold" life is. In this collection of stories, the supernatural intersects with everyday life in surprising and dangerous ways
Summary
A collection of short stories includes two dark tales set in the world of Tithe, a tour of a fairy market, and the story of a girl who challenges the devil to a competitive eating match
