Why? Because FEAR STREET was like, my favorite series growing up.
Originally released in March, 1994.
This book started off pretty silly, but by the middle gets really good. Maggie and Andrea and such competitive sisters - they fight all the time, are both on the swim team, and even look alike. I found myself feeling like Maggie - ecstatic about the beautiful canopy bed (what girl doesn't want a canopy bed sometime in their life?) and then getting scared for her when things begin to go wrong. Maggie is a fairly unique character for Fear Street in that she knows she is not crazy but it is difficult to explain the insane things that are happening to her. The chapters in this book seem to be slightly longer than the normal Fear Street books, and I think it allows more room for character development. Bad Dreams is a spectacular piece of the Fear Street series!
