Wow, wow, wow a new R. L. Stine book!! Boy this brings me back to my younger days when everyone was running to the library to check out a Goosebump book or the latest fear street book. Thinking back I can remember my friends and I being afraid of Mr. Stine’s books than the wonderful T.V. stations made a show of all Mr. Stine’s Goosebumps books and that was way better than “Are you afraid of the dark” show on Nick!.

So….. as you can imagine I was super excited to receive this book from St. Martin’s to read and review this book. I literally was jumping up and down excited…. And guess what?! I was not disappointed. I read this book in one day and couldn’t put it down. I was actually sad it was over and wished I had another one of his books to read.

The book goes back and forth in time, present day and the past to tell the story. It starts off in the past back in 1950. We are introduced to Beth and her family. Wonderful things are happening to Beth’s family until some men come and take Beth’s father away. Beth watched her father die a horrific death at the hands of Martin Dooley. (This was very gross and gory but loved every minute of it). Beth tried to save her father with her “powers” but this didn’t work.

We are now jumped to present day where we meet the main character Michael and his girlfriend Pepper. They are seniors in high school and are editors of the school’s yearbook and blog. A new girl Lizzie shows up to school and everything changes. Bad things are happening and now this new girl is trying to split up Pepper and Michael. Pepper is not happy that Michael befriends Lizzie and invites her to hang out with their group of friends.

On a snowy day they go for a snowmobile ride and a very bad accident happens (not going into details because I don’t want to be a spoiler). After this accident Michael keeps getting threating calls and texts and bad things are happening to every one of his friends that were with on the night of the accident. Some even DIE!

Towards the end everything starts falling into place and you’re going to go OMG….. and turn the pages faster to figure out the ending.
Best book I read in a while you will not be disappointed. Everyone needs to read this R.L. Stine book or you’re not American!
