Pretty good read except for the ending. It fell a little flat. The twist was unexpected. Overall a pretty decent book.

It was good, but not great. I enjoyed it, the story was very mysterious and thrilling enough, but in an other kind of way it was a bit boring at the same time. - A bit slow.

But the twist ending; I really did not see that one coming. (As always. ;-) ) The story was entertaining enough, and it could hold my attention, so I'm still giving it 3 stars.

I'm having so much fun re-reading old Fear Street books!

This one is actually legitimately good, and I love it just as much now as I did back then. It's definitely one of the more creative Fear Street books, and the twist ending is awesome.

This is a thrilling, suspenseful, and mysterious story. I enjoyed it very much. At times, while reading the story did get a little slow. By the end of the book the twist that happens is something I did not see coming.

Everything in this book is awesome from theme to characters, from scenes to ending of each chapter but ending of this book is very very much strange and unacceptable.

I think that Lauren Kate must have read this before she wrote Fallen. Ha ha. Just kidding.

Bet you can't guess who the bad GUY is. :)
