Synopsis:

Jamie and Tom have been going out since junior high. They are planning to graduate from high school and attend college together. Everything's perfect until Tom breaks a date--and all the horror begins. What has happened to Tom? To Jamie's horror, the boy she loves is stalking her and making threats. Now, there's nowhere Jamie can hide.

My rating: ★★☆☆☆

Oh, this book... not one of R.L. Stine’s best, I’m afraid.

head shake

This is gonna be hard review to do because pretty much everything I have to say is spoiler-y, so here we go. Lol.

Basically, Jamie is at the mall one day with her best friend, when she witnesses a robbery and murder. She freaks out because she thinks the guy might have been her boyfriend Tom. But this idiot wasn’t wearing her glasses, but she’s pretty sure it was him.



Tom was being a little shady—he was definitely hiding something from Jamie. Was it the murder?



And then the climax was pretty underwhelming...



So yeah, I wasn’t the biggest fan of this book. The main character Jamie was just so dumb it was frustrating! Everything was just so obvious to me from the start! I’ll tell you one thing I did like though: Jamie’s friend Ann-Marie. She was really funny and such a savage! But overall, this book? Not my thing. I swear, R.L. Stine was so many other books that are better than this! I promise! Lol.
