I love Fear Street! I've been a fan since I was like in middle school, so was super excited to find out R.L. Stine would be adding a couple more books to the series. In fact, I read Party Games, the first book in the Fear Street relaunch, not too long ago and absolutely loved it! So of course I could not wait to get my hands on this one! Unfortunately, it didn't totally live up to my expectations. Don't get me wrong! I enjoyed it--the action the Fear Street creepiness... I just love this world! But, overall, it was just kind of... meh =/
The story started off interesting enough, but then it morphed into this book that had a Goosebumps feel to it and made me go "wha?"
I kept waiting for things to turn around, you, know, for that awesome plot twist, but it never came! It was so predictable and so very disappointing. R.L. Stine is one of the few authors who can actually surprise me. The whole thing was just more silly than scary.
I mean, overall, I did enjoy the story. I think I'll always love all things Fear Street and the mysteries surrounding said street, but this whole thing with this creature... *shakes head* I just don't think it worked for a "YA" novel.
