Generations of children and teens have grown up on R.L. Stine's bestselling and hugely popular horror series, Fear Street and Goosebumps. Now, the Fear Street series is back with a chilling new installment, packed with pure nightmare fodder that will scare Stine's avid fan base of teen readers and adults.
New student Lizzy Palmer is the talk of Shadyside High. Michael and his girlfriend Pepper befriend her, but the closer they get to her, the stranger she seems… and the more attractive she is to Michael. He invites her to join him on a snowmobile race that ends in a tragic accident. Soon, Michael's friends start being murdered, and Pepper becomes convinced that Lizzy is behind the killings. But to her total shock, she and Michael are drawn into a tragic story of an unthinkable betrayal committed over 60 years ago. Frightening and tense in the way that only this master of horror can deliver, The Lost Girl is another terrifying Fear Street novel by the king of juvenile horror.
I was so excited to come across this book on NetGalley, as a child I can remember countless times reading these books, watching the movies. Even now I will still watch Goosebumps when it comes on t.v. So it was an easy choice to make, I just kept my fingers crossed that I would be accepted and able to read this ARC, obviously we all know how that turned out.
So, at the start of this book I had a hard time getting into the book. I was actually scared that my hopes were going to be dashed and this would be a book to the add to the did not finish pile. Thankfully I pushed through and boy was I glad I did. Once you get to the ending of the book you will be glad you persevered as well.
This book was a great October Read for me, it raised the goosebumps on my arms and made it so I wanted to sleep with the lights on. I am sure that was the point, to cause nightmares and induce terror, but it is definitely not for a younger generation. I would recommend it for adults and older kids.
Still, It is an awesome read and I Can't wait to catch up on the rest.
