Extremities by David Lubar

Author David Lubar is best known for a series of books with the word "weenie" in the title so this is a surprising turn for him to take.  13 short stories deal with dark, dark topics with macabre twists at the end.  One story describes revenge upon a nasty P.E. teacher.  Another is about a girl who discovers her perfect boyfriend is a vampire.  A group of friends sneak aboard a cruise ship only to discover that they are not on the ship they expected.  I liked the twists in some of the stories but many didn't do much for me and a few seemed too dark to be enjoyable.
