High school junior Cassie Adler just wanted the bullying to stop. She thought gaining a spot on the varsity soccer team would whip up instant friends, but it isn't until the popular girls need Cassie's help that they acknowledge her presence. Cassie reluctantly agrees to participate in a prank that turns sour fast. Now with blood on their hands, she and the popular girls race to cover their tracks. But something savage knows what they've done, and it's hungry for revenge. Can Cassie redeem herself before it's too late, or will her deadly sins ketchup to her?

Book 7 in the Rewind-or-Die series: imagine your local movie rental store back in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, remember all those fantastic covers. Remember taking those movies home and watching in awe as the stories unfolded in nasty rainbows of gore, remember the atmosphere and textures. Remember the blood.

My 2 Cents For Free!

Food Fright takes the hazing gone all kinds of wrong trope and makes it fresh and disgusting and fun. It’s equal parts ick!, absurd and inventive. It would make a truly wild film that I’d watch over and over again 😹

Cassie just wanted to fit in and allows herself to be bullied into doing something she isn’t comfortable doing to appease the mean girls. A terrible, regrettable thing happens because OF COURSE it does silly girl and then the fun begins! This is a novella and to say too much of anything here will spoil all of the fun for you so I’m going to keep my big mouth shut and tell you to read it if you like gooey horror! This is the gooey-ist and you will love it! Pair it with Sleepaway Camp for a double feature of glorious ewww!

At its heart, and buried under all of the over the top monsters (I will neva look at a brownie the same way again) and gleeful killin’ joy, this is a book about acceptance and the missteps many make attempting to find it in the wrong place and I can easily recommend it if you have a strong stomach and a ridiculous sense of humor.



  1. That title and cover totally made me laugh. :)

  2. this sounds delicious. lol.

  3. Gooey plus horror sounds fun! Is there such a thing as food horror? Maybe there is! Mean brownies??????

  4. That sounds fun. That cover is funny.

  5. This sounds great! Horror mixed with humor sounds fantastic to me.

  6. Glad this was a hit for you!! I had so much fun reading this one. After I finished, I made a batch of brownies! LOL
