Why? Because FEAR STREET was like, my favorite series growing up.
Originally released in November, 1990 and November, 1995.
The thought of gaining a stepsister in high school is plenty terrifying in and of itself. But when Fear Street is involved, it's downright horrifying. In the first book I really enjoyed the ending. You really are convinced that you know who the culprit is, but Stine surprises you in the last chapter. Then in the second book it is still hard to tell who is doing all of these bad things to Emily, and I liked the nervousness of not knowing what was intended to harm or was just an accident. Except I am confused as to why everyone wants to kill Emily. She's is so unassuming and harmless... not popular or mean or anything that warrants the behavior towards her. Perhaps it is just her bad luck to be surrounded by people who are so bad! Both Stepsister stories are great additions to the Fear Street series.
Fear Rating: 2 out of 3 Screams
