'Point' Scholastic teen horrors

I started collecting these series of books back in Grade 5. I remember ordering them off the cheap Scholastic book guides/magazines that were given out by my primary school library. Do you remember those? You tore off the back flap and wrote in those tiny little columns what books you wanted to order? Remember? 

I kept these books for my future children – can you believe that? Yes, I really really did. Does that make me a very ghoulish mother? Or a very cool one? {Don’t answer!}

Out of these the best were (IMO): April Fools and Teachers Pet (both by Ritchie Tankersley Cusick). Thirteen was good, too. Missing Since Monday was the first one I ever read (I think).

I’d given them up by about Grade 7 or 8.
