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. @goodreads
I used to read R.L. Stine's Fear Street books when I was younger and
just loved them. It's nice to read a new one many years later.
first a lot of the things going on in the book was getting on my
nerves. The way some of the characters acted, but it turned out awesome
when I found out the whole story! I don't want to give out any spoilers
so lets see if I can put this together in a way that makes sense :) Mild
The book goes back and forth in time, telling two
different stories. Back in 1950 Beth watched her father die a horrific
death at the hands of Martin Dooley. It was just a very sick way to be
killed. She had a bit of powers she learned from her grandmother but she
couldn't help her dad. I could not even begin to imagine! The bad guys
spot her and take off after her, but she runs into the Fear Street
woods. Martin's son Aaron chases after her. They are both soon lost.
to present day. You have Michael, his girlfriend Pepper and a few of
their friends. It is their senior year of high school and they are just
trying to get through it.
A new girl named Lizzy arrives on the
scene and causes problems with everyone. She ends up breaking up Micheal
and Pipper and horns in on everything.
One day they all go out
on snowmobiles and Michael hits a guy coming out of the woods. He thinks
he kills him and they all leave him there because they are scared.
Michael starts getting threatening phone calls saying he and his
friends are going to die. It's from the guy that Lizzie says is named
Angel, a guy who was bad news from her old school. He's the same guy
they left in the woods!
Some people are killed and the story
gets a little creepy, but finally at the end it all falls into place and
at that point it reeks of old school Fear Street :)
like to thank NETGALLEY and ST. MARTIN'S PRESS for giving me the
opportunity to read an ARC of this book for my honest review.**
