The Lost Girl by R.L. Stine

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.

At 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 spoilers then.

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.

Now 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.

Then 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 :)

**I would 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.**
