this was definatly NOT "the scariest night" for me anyway. the only scary part was towards the end...... i wouln't spoil it for you, but don't get your hopes up, it isn't really even that scary. i didn't like this book very much, unlike most of betty wren wright's other books. abduction is pretty scary and it makes you double check underneath the bed, in the closet, and lock your doors and windows before you go to bed. i would not recomened this book to you if you are looking for something spook ...more

The Scariest Night was okay. I was hoping it would be a bit scarier, but the most frightening part, which wasn't that frightening at all, wasn't until the last two chapters. However, this book is ideal for a young reader who is looking for something spooky that won't keep them from sleeping soundly at night.
This one was one of my favorites of this author. It had a neat twist, but what made it even better was the relationships between the characters and different personalities existing in the same apartment building

Two and a half stars, really. For what it is, it does it quite well, but it loses half a star for clueless parents ;)
