My Review:
I always loved R.L. Stine books in school. They are chilling, captivating, and full of mystery. This new Fear Street book achieves the standard of the originals not that I am surprised. I loved that the book jump back and forth between now and 1950. It was like two different stories but you just had this sneaky suspicion that both stories would connect in a sinister way. As the story went on I was captivated by the dark plot line and could not wait for the conclusion. The writing is amazing of course, the characters are well written, and the plot will keep you reading. 
I am happy that more books are being added to R.L. Stine's classic collections! I will enjoy reading them to my niece and nephews! R.L. Stine thank you for continuing writing and bring unique stories to young readers!
I recommend to all....read it, get scared, and love it like me!
