I read this book when I was in elementary school - and I'm almost 20 now. I read it out of order, but I completely fell in love with 'Fear Street' series (all of them), and do plan to read every single one of them. It was rather creepy, but I loved it! I would definitely recommend it :)
So the last time I read this book, I think I was in middle school. I picked it up again after remembering how much I enjoyed this teen horror stories. It's not a bad book, and I can see why I liked it in the past, but as an adult I guess I'm used to books with a bit more to them. Even the current crop of YA books tend to have more development then the books of my teen years. I wish the author would go back and revise his old books.

Very quick read, about three high school friends all interested in the new boy at school.

The short chapters are written in such a way that the ending makes you freak out about the logical next thing, but then something else happens at the beginning of the new chapter instead. I had never read any of R.L. Stine's books before, but found this copy in the library and was about to thro ...more
Three girls that are high school friends all have the same crush on the new guy Ross. All three of them makes a bet on who can get with him first. However, slowly each one of them start to die off one by one. Ross is being suspected as the murder. This book can relate to some real life situations because girls are constantly going after the same guy just based on looks. When will they realize it's not just looks? I would recommend this book to anyone who would enjoy reading about high school dra ...more

R.L. Stine es uno de mis autores favoritos y fue precisamente con éste titulo ("El chico nuevo" en mi país) por el cual lo conocí. Lo leí hace como 11 años, pero el libro ya tenía más tiempo de editado y a pesar de ello, me sigue gustando mucho. Es una historia "juvenil" que cuenta con muy buena dosis de suspenso, acción y hasta romance... hace que no pares de leer hasta terminarlo.
