Fear Street Flashback (17)

Why? Because FEAR STREET was like, my favorite series growing up.

Originally released in May, 1995.

This is an awesome Fear Street book. Perhaps because the narrator is first person, and Nicole is quite the storyteller. There is also non-stop action from pretty much the second chapter on, which keeps the book moving at a break-neck speed. It is pretty obvious to the reader what is happening to poor Nicole, but that doesn't change the suspense. It is still scary to watch Nicole go through the motions of what she is believing to be true in her own head. My only complaint would be that it was annoying to me when Nicole would discover gruesome sights and not tell anybody about them. But that was just normal for her character, which was well fleshed out. And the ending is completely worth it, as one last little jab into the reader's head. A very good story, and a perfect addition to the Fear Street drama.

Fear Rating: 3 out of 3 Screams
