Für Lizzy erfüllt sich ein Traum, als neben ihr selbst auch noch ihre Freundinnen Simone, Elana, Dawn und Rachel für die Wahl zur Ballkönigin nominiert werden. Schließlich gewinnt so auf jeden Fall jemand, dem Lizzy die Krone auch gönnt. Oder es sollte zumindest so sein. Denn als Simone spurlos aus ihrem eigenen Zimmer im Haus ihrer Eltern verschwindet und recht bald festzustehen scheint,

Despite the fact that none of the characters are all that likable, THE PROM QUEEN is still en epic foray into old school cheese. I seriously just can't get enough of these books.

For the bad, the characters really aren't redeeming. They all go on dates with one of their friends' boyfriends behind her back and they do it shamelessly. They're all self-centered, one's exceptionally bitter and it's not like these girls have revelations at the end of the book that fix these issues. That's just how the

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

I read many series when I was a kid from The Saddle Club to Sweet Valley Middle/High but one of my favorites was the Fear Street Series so for fun I thought I would add a few of these books on here. I would recommend them as great and age appropriate thriller/horror books for young adults.

I will always love R.L. Stine's Fear Street series, even if the characters are awful and the twists ridiculous. The Prom Queen was less predictable than the others, and the only redeeming character was the main one, when she wasn't berating another character for his "weirdness."

Though the plot was somewhat familiar, I enjoyed seeing it at the high-school level (where the ridiculous twists come in!) One of the characters made a comment about mourning the dead despite not being particularly fon

This is probably the best Fear Street book I have ever read. The characters were very entertaining and the protagonist is very repeatable. The ending was very shocking knowing I guessed that the murderer was anyone but who the murderer ended up being. The only thing I did not like about the book was the fact that it was not that scary. When I picked up this book I was expecting to get freaked out but I didn't. I recommend it to anyone who wants to read a book about murder mystery that is not all ...more

I'll admit, I thought I had read this book before. It's possible I did, but since it's been nearly two decades since I read the series, it's also possible I just remember the cover. Either way, I found myself enjoying and yet, a little annoyed with this book. I once again find myself wondering why every female character is afraid of storms and being home alone. As a teenager, I loved the prospect of having the house to myself and storms were just

This is one of 5 old books given to me. I read it first because the others (based from the title and illustrations) were high school drama.

Anyway, I felt like I've read this before but I wasn't sure.

Starting with things I liked first: (1) the prom queens liked each other (mostly), (2) girls dating their friend's boyfriend (I didn't like it but it was believable), (3) the protagonist genuinely cared for her friends.

Now, there were a lot of things I didn't like: (1) the climax felt rushed, (2) the

Another good Fear Street book! After finishing it, though, I have a feeling I might have read this one as a kid. This book was really suspenseful. I honestly had no idea who the killer was until the end. R.L. Stine did a good job of making everyone seem suspicious. As I read I was constantly thinking 'ohmigod, that person's the killer!'. It seemed like everyone could have a motive and did creepy things. The ending seemed a bit far-fetched, but not enough that it bothered me.

I didn't really like

A library book. With the current "Goosebumps" movie out, I wanted to see what author R.L. Stine was all about. This isn't a "Goosebumps" series novel, but one of his "Fear Street" series, seemingly written for young teens. It was typical of that genre, entertaining enough to finish, but pure fluff, vaguely scary to a young person, appropriate for the Halloween season.

A bunch of appropriately-sassy girls get spooked. Why can I never guess the killer? I'm such a mystery shlub; I can restrain myself from chasing the first red herring but the second or third always makes me snap my jaws and salivate.

Nothing astonishing, but definitely enjoyable -- the Stine man brings it again.

My sister just called asking if I remember us reading this book as kids!
After an hour we finally found it.
I slept with the lights on for a year whilst reading this.
I am about to reread it again tonight and will update my review on whether the book has held up all these years.
So excited I found it!

I think this book is really good. There were five prom queen canadiates and one is to be chosen. The principle said "and the winner is..." Then all of a sudden the prom turned into a disaster. Screams everywhere, and frightened people everywhere as well. If you want to find out what happened, I suggest you go read this book. It's very well written and detailed and a really good book.

I read this one once when I was like... eight or nine, so re-reading it now I had actually forgotten who the killer was. So that was a pleasant surprise. It's got a few odd phrases but overall it's an ok book. Nostalgic.

This Fear Street book is one of the better ones. The main character is likeable, the plot keeps you guessing, and the killer's identity surprises you (in a good way). The guys in the book were jerks, but it's the same in every Fear Street book. I do have to admit that one thing left me wanting to know more: (view spoiler) ...more

Jealousy, betrayal, and back-stabbing are the words that describe the characters in this book. Who wouldn't love to be prom queen? Where are the consequences to be one? Who knows.

This was one of my favorites as a kid, and re-reading it now was still enjoyable. I have to give it 4 stars for that alone.

I remembered this book vividly but it didn't make this any less fun to read. This is a classic Fear Street book - people are dying and the killer is the last person you'd suspect. It's such a simple plot, yet he recycled it over and over and over again throughout the series. Somehow I never noticed (or cared) as a kid.

This was the first Fear Street book I read as a kid and is still one of my favourites. It actually contains real danger and fear for the characters not just a bunch of red herrings, imagined scenarios and paranormal activity that happen in too many of the Fear Street books.

I love this book and enjoy re-reading it when I need some mindless entertainment and a quick read. :)

I remember reading this yeeeeears ago (I think I was 8...maybe 7). But, at the time, my mom didn't like me reading about R.L. Stine since I got nightmares from it (yeah, that long ago) and so, this was the only book I read from the fear street series. Good book, not all that scary anymore, but, back when I was that young, it sure was. Happy reading!
