Series: Give Yourself Goosebumps — no. 40
Author: Stine, R. L.
Illustrator: White, Craig
Date: 1999
Gartax's Thoughts:

This is an average entry in the series, with some open endings and pointless deaths. It is notable for having slightly more gruesome and violent deaths than usual for Give Yourself Goosebumps (including being strangled by a tentacle, and being beaten to death by other students). Some ideas are handled well, for instance getting demerits rather than being sent straight to detention.

Stockton's Thoughts:

This book is in the same general vein as You're Plant Food! and Shop Till You Drop... Dead! but isn't nearly as sophisticated. Basically, you choose four classes from a list of six and have to survive them all. It's not a bad read and the more violent deaths make it more interesting.

I would normally take issue with the fact that you can't win without cheating in some strings unless you're wearing certain clothes, but this is Give Yourself Goosebumps, so it's expected. What I do find unbelieveable about this, though, is that your character is actually excited about attending an elite, snobby boarding school. I know I certainly wouldn't like it too much to begin with, even if the teachers weren't trying to brainwash me.
