Figured this was an appropriate book to review before Halloween. The return of R.L.Stine and his Fear Street series.
And well... I have to say the 12 year old in me who loved Fear Street was a little disappointed. Granted I have matured quite a bit with my reading skill level, I just hoped that the nostalgia would carry me through it. It did, but not really.
Rachel has a crush on Brendan. Brendan invites her to a party on an island. Her friends warn her not to go. Rachel goes. Within minutes of getting off the boat to the island, someone is hurt, most likely dead. That's when my spidey senses woulda been, you know lets head back to the mainland where there is a hospital, not oh well...hopefully my party will get better? But... Brendan likes games. He wants all of his parties to feature somethign that everyone will remember. The injured boat driver apparently is not enough.
Enter game. Enter all the spooky, scary, death stuff that one comes to know with reading Fear Street.
I am glad that R.L. Sitne is back, if only that the younger generation can now get the shit scared out of them. Although, maybe they should stick to the older books....
3 stars... for nostalgia
