Summary, etc.: A girl wagers her soul in a sour-gummy-frog-eating contest with the devil. Love and a homemade coat rescues a boy from his fairyland jailers. A newly bitten teenage vampire uses the Inernet 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.
