One of the better GYG books of the series. The plot, although a little shaky, works for the most part and is actually a little intriguing, if unbelievable. The story is about you investigating strange happenings around the cemetery behind your grandmother's house, which turn out to be ghosts rising from their graves to torment you. Recommended.
At the beginning you start to notice the coffins in front of your gramme's house. There were ghost in your house, but your grandma can't see the ghost. You try to make the ghost leave and you tried to run away, but the ghost didn't let you.

P.S The only reason I said you instead of a character's name was that this goose bump book was a book where you choose the end of the story.

I choose this book because I hardly read goose bump books, so I want to try a book I hardly read.

Exciting! at least my ending was. It was a great pastime. However, I still think it wouldn't have been as interesting if not for the interactivity (I died two times is that much?) I want to go back and see how many possible scenarios I can get.
The idea behind this gamebook adventure is both surprisingly creative and very well written: You are visiting your grandmother's house (which happens to have an old graveyard in the backyard), when one day you notice that the graves seem to be rearranging themselves when you're not looking, forming patterns of themselves. Might they be trying to send you a message? Is your grandmother's house haunted?
R.L. Stine has shown again his ability to write good scary stories, and to include characters
I have read better by R. L. Stine.
One of my favorites from my childhood.
this time you are in the story. the house of your grandmother has a graveyard for a backyard. At 1st, the tombstones, they seem far away, but every day they move closer, and closer. Here you have two choices. 1st, If you stay, you must battle a worrier ghost. 2nd, If you run, one of the kid ghosts will follow you home. what will you choose...will you choose be haunted... for the rest of your life?
I bought this book when I was in primary school at the Book Fair! Seems like forever ago!
I love it how it puts you into the story and you choose what happens and what actions you take.

I used to love the Give Yourself Goosebumps books. You could reread them again and again taking a different turn each time to get to the different stories/endings.
it is a scary book but i am more interested in this book because there are many instructions like go to page77
