In this hilarious finale to School of Fear, Garrison, Lulu, Madeleine, and Theo face their greatest fear: a TV reporter is planning an unflattering expose that would surely shut the school down forever. The children seek help from the famous contrarian, Bishop Basmati, head of the nearby Contrary Academy, but they find the school overrun with rogue students, who are the children's exact opposites--hyperactive, fearless, and extremely impulsive. The School of Fear children face off against the Contrarian students and eventually win, learning a bit about being fearless in the process.
On the day of the interview, everyone is on their best "normal" behavior, and the children even prove to the reporter that they've successfully overcome their fears. Everyone is so normal... and so boring. Without an expose, the School of Fear is saved! And most importantly--the children are now ready to graduate.
Praise for School of Fear: The Final Exam:
"[School of Fear: The Final Exam] introduces a worthy new character: Basmati, the headmaster of the Contrary Conservatory... Gifford's illustrations add the usual nice and creepy touch."
Praise for School of Fear 2: Class Is Not Dismissed: "This sequel uses the wry humor and outrageous situations that characterized the first book and makes for an entertaining read."

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 GittyDaneshvari.com and @GittyDaneshvari.
