Staff Reviews

School of Fear, #1 in a wonderful trilogy, is a book I would recommend to anyone and everyone! Her hilarious and creative writing had me crying laughing and highlighting sentences that I want to reread over and over again. The quirky, cute, and mostly straight-up weirdness of this story stuck with me for years, so much so that I had to buy another copy and reread it 10 years later. Harry Potter meets Lemony Snicket with many twists and turns in this amazing, all-ages, book!

For the first time--maybe ever--Madeleine, Theo, Lulu, and Garrison are not looking forward to the start of summer, and three little words are to blame: School of Fear. In what they're sure will be the longest and most terrifying six weeks of their lives, the foursome must face their phobias head-on as students of the exclusive and elusive school. There's no homework or exams. But if they don't conquer their fears by the end of the summer, they'll find out just how frightening failing can be.

About the Author

Gitty Daneshvari was an average child, the kind who never made much of a mark academically, athletically, or socially, so it hardly came as a surprise when she was rejected from her school's Talented and Gifted Program. On the contrary, Gitty had long ago accepted that she simply wasn't "special," unless of course you counted her long list of phobias (please read School of Fear for further explanation). Luckily, as Gitty aged, she realized that while she lacked natural talent, there was nothing stopping her from figuring out what she enjoyed and then working hard to become better at it.

Gitty is the author of the series The League of Unexceptional Children, School of Fear, and Monster High: Ghoulfriends. She invites you to visit her online at and @GittyDaneshvari.
