Under the Skin. This short reminded me of the Crimson Hag in The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. She would knit the entrails of flesh into a tattered gown of guts. However, Under the Skin is inspired by The Landlady by Roald Dahl. It's about an old withered woman who uses human flesh to re-upholster her furniture. Granny doesn't like marks on her upholstery either.
Snapper the Fish: The girl is a spoiled brat who needs to be taught a lesson. She got what she deserved.
Deadly Dreams: I am thankful we are spared of 10 levels of computer games except this game is very real. If you don't make it to the end alive then you die in real life too.
All birds hate me: Every character is named after a bird in this story.
Ghost Tennis: The house is haunted by a kid who plays with a tennis ball late at night and disturbs the new residents.
Drip-Drip-Drip: Dreams of drowning in a house filling up with water and fighting for your life trying to escape it.
When I Snap My Fingers: A hypnosis went terribly wrong.
Lights Out: A boy was nicknamed Lights Out because he could turn lights off and on just with his presence. He thought he had superpowers.

I liked the first 3 stories, Ghost Tennis and When I Snap My Fingers the most, but whatever, they were all well written as young adult short stories go.
