Good old Fear Street series, how I loved thee! In fact, me and my three besties loved it so much we turned one of the books into a radio show for an English assignment back in high school. I can't remember which one it was now, but it was about a psycho and someone who gets put into the boot of a car and everyone elses' generic description is just "scared follower sheep".* I know that could potentially refer to at least 30% of the Fear Street installments... but it isn't this one.

The premise of The Rich Girl is much better than the actual book. I love R.L. Stine and his Fear Street books, as you know, but this was not his best - at least in my opinion. It was over dramatic to the point of annoying actually. The way the plot moved along was completely unrealistic to me. Emma and Sydney find a duffle bag full of money. While Emma wants to keep the money, Sydney is hesitant but finally gives in and agrees to keep it, on one condition: they must bury it and not spend any of ...more

I am not going to write a review for R.L Stine's books because I would never want to spoil it to anyone. Just know that this is brilliant, like every other book that he wrote. His own version of horror stories is unlike every other story out there that frightens their viewers by creating monsters with vicious faces who eats people’s faces and stuff. He creates dread and terror by making situations that you would never want to occur. Real scenarios that would make you writhe in your seat with jus ...more

There's always an unexpected ending in r.l Stine books but all of them would be a surprising ending but when i found out the money that they found was fake it just made me laugh.

The thing I love about the Fear Street novels is the fact you never know which way they are going to turn out. Sometimes there really is a killer lurking around the corner. Sometimes it’s a psychological thriller. Sometimes it’s a plot against one of the characters and sometimes someone is really just freaking crazy. This is great, because as I went into this book, which I’m fairly certain is not one of the ones I’ve read before, I had no clue wh

This is a very classic Fear Street book in that it’s crappy characters being crappy to each other as the big twist at the end. Everything seems okay aside from Jason appearing to be a little murderous over money and he’s coming off as the driving antagonist in the book but the “twist” comes and it’s SURPRISE. All a ruse and no one’s really friends after all. It’s kind of shitty, really.

The plot seemed like it was heading in an okay-enough direction as the girls find this money and decide to bury

Yes! I will kill a cockroach, a fly.. just not a person! *looks up innocently*

I always loved R.l Stine books. This is one of my favorites BOOKS! it's about how two bff's( Emma and Sydny) found a bag full of a hundred dollar bills. They promised each other to not tell anyone, but Sydny broke her promise and told her boyfriend Jason. Jason then tried to steal the money from them and Emma killed him. They disposed of him in a lake. When they thought it was all over Jason came back and Mad.

I read this book earlier this year, and let me just say: This book has the best ending EVER! I won't spoil it for anyone, but it was nothing less than shocking and satisfying.

The plot is that teenage girls Emma and Sydney have discovered a duffel bag filled with money. They decide to keep the bag and swear not to tell anyone. But Sydney quickly breaks their promise and tells her boyfriend, Jason. Now, Emma is fearing for her life. Will Jason kill for money?

While this might seem like an overused

I love the beginning & the half of the story, but very dissapointed with the ending :(
however, this book had a very good moral story :
Don't be too trusting & too kind to everyone near you,
include your bestfriend & boyfriend.
Because they can backstabbed & utilize you without your knowledge

This book was...omg...there's no way to explain it whatsoever. The book is just...amazing. It's quite interesting going back and reading these type of books. BUT you get a taste of expecting a LOT of things, but realizing, that your expectations aren't exactly what happens.

This book is about two girls that go to Shadyville high and have a job at a cineplex. something interesting happens at the cineplex that involves money. In the end there is a huge twist and I enjoyed the book so much I couldn't put it down.

A three way love triangle, with a duffel bag of money... Who will end up with the garbage bin duffel bag, filled with money? Why would anyone throw away money anyways. I knew right away what was up, not one of my favorites and really short.

There are only two good things about this book. It's a great read from a psychological point of view and I like how it's the main character's boyfriend that's untrustworthy. Usually, it's the 'friend's'. Other than that, this book just made me depressed. First off, the description on the back of the book makes it hard to determine who is the main character in the beginning. Secondly, I wish we learned something about where the duffle bag came from. Most of all, the book's ending is just depressi ...more

Emma and Syndey are best friends for a while. One day they find a duffel bag filled with money. The may seem like a good thing at first. It cause many problems towards them. They swear to each other never to tell anyone. Syndey told her boyfriend. Later we find out Syndey's boyfriend Jason was having an affair with Emma. Jason acts very greedy and does many things. Emma's mom needed an operation so they got the money away from Syndey but the money was fake.

Mystery stories always attract me. This novel tells about friendship between Emma and Sydney. They are bestfriends. But sometimes...yeah, money can change everything. Even friendship. When Emma and Sydney accidentaly found a bag contained with thousands of dollars, they swore to each other to not telling people about their finding until they heard news about whose the bag belonged to. Sydney got very anxious because of their finding and finally she told this to her boyfriend, Jason. Actually, Em ...more

Emma and her friend Sydney found a bag full of money in a dumpster. They promised to keep this a secret. But Sydney told her boyfriend. Emma didn't feel comfortable about this. Strange things were happening to her and Sydney. They almost got into a car accident after Sydney's boyfriend, Jason fixed Sydney's car. Throughout the book, Jason plot schemes to take all the money for himself.

This is a great book for horror fans. I liked this book because the ending is very surprising and very unpredi

I still couldn't believe it!! Just because of money, Emma could turn her best friend into a metal person. At first, I could tell that Jason is not dead yet but I couldn't believe the fact that Emma helps Jason to scary Sydney like that. I finished the book last night and I couldn't sleep until hours later. I really like all the books from R.L.Stine, even thought that I freak out every time I read her book but I still like it. Even thought this book is really good but I think Baby Sister is still ...more
