I liked this book better than part 1. Its plot has more going on than the previous one. (view spoiler)I like how the author continued Rich's problems in this book, but I'm still frustrated by the lack of information about why he's ...more
I decided to revisit my childhood books and picked this one up! I read it when I was somewhere between the ages of 10-12. I was literally OBSESSED with R.L.Stine's Fear Street collection. I would read one after the other. lol. Now, about 15ish years later I thought I'd give it a try again. I can see why little me loved it so much. It is quite the read and a good mystery for that age group. :)

Fear Street sequels are usually not very good, but I actually liked this better than the first one. I couldn't quite remember the ending, and even when I started to I really doubted myself due to several red herrings.

And can I just say that Emily's mother is awful?

Also, what does R.L. Stine have against dogs?

"Besessen" ist die Fortsetzung einer vorherigen Geschichte der Fear Street Reihe. Emilys Schwester, die versucht hat sie zu töten, kehrt aus der Psychiatrie wieder. Aber ist ihre Wut und Trauer wirklich verschwunden oder ist sie einfach nur eine gute Schauspielerin? Ich konnte nicht erraten wer der Mörder diesmal ist und war sehr überrascht.

Fazit: Die Geschichte war super spannend, voller Action und sehr gruselig. Die Handlung war sehr gut und hat einen einfach mitgerissen!!

First of all, this second book was better than the first book. This book was a starter for me to read horror books, and I used to hate horrors. While I was reading, I was really surprised with this girl hating her sister so much. It really did made me shiver, and I had to read with my blankets wrapped around me. In addition, this book made me understand about the idea of 'not wanting to stop'. So I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes horror/mysterious books.

I think this book was better than the 1st book. It has more tension between Nancy and Emily. Also, there are problems with Jessie and her friend along with Emily and Rich. Because there are so many conflicts, it's kind of exciting and thrilling at the same time. I recommend this book to people who like horror and mystery book but you should first read "The Stepsister" because it's the first book.
Sep 05, 2012 Emily rated it did not like it
I loved the first Stepsister because it was a great thriller, but this book is a waste of paper. Why is that? It is exactly the same as the first one to every detail. I read it all the way through to see if a different person who did these horrid things again; but, nope, same person. The only surprise is both that the main character, Emily, and the author seems to have suffered amnesia!

I have read stepsister2, which is after step sister 1. In step sister2, it was more scary than the stepsister 1. It was very thrilled book, and this book made me read more scary books, because it was not that scary, but it was so excited with the talkings. When ever I image the story in my head every time i kept reading,it was also made me more focued on to the book.
This continues the story of The Stepsister.

I really liked this book. It had good plot twists,(which always make the books better right?) I think teens girls would like this book. I liked the twist ending on this book as with all R.L.Stine Fear Street books. I really liked the twist ending at the end of this book.

Fear Street is a guilty pleasure of mine. Spooky stories and just crazy not so scary stuffs.
This one has a cute cover, and at least I can't really guess who the real killer is till the last part :)

I read this book while in middle school. I was a HUGE R.L. Stine fan and like most of his other books, I couldn't put it down.
Jun 09, 2008 Johanne rated it it was ok
this book is just like every other RL Stine's books. it is just like a movie where you don't really know what will happen next.
It was an ok book, although the ending was kind of predictable... The first one was better..
