I used to enjoy collecting the Point Horror series as a teen. This title is one of a few that I can't really recall having.
Found it to be an enjoyable read, but not one of Hoh's best.

I give it 4* for the way it transported me back to the early 90s. I remember being jealous that Megan had a phone in her bedroom - something I never had at home.

I think I'd have liked it better if I'd read it under a different imprint, at a different time. It's not really a horror story, more of an urban fantasy, and as I'm reading these books in October (Halloween season!) horror and crazed killers are what I want. In addition, I came to this one off the back of Trick or Treat, so anything was bound to be a disappointment.
