I have never read 'the hidden staircase' but one of my friends told me it was really scary. Is it?

HaileyEvans no no no no no nono
Anna Nope. If you are all alone in a dark attic, maybe, but nope.
Kira Jervey Not scary just exciting.
Adrian H. Not really, well the new movie is, but not the book.
October Rose I don’t think so, but there is low-violence kidnapping, a spookily haunted house, and one incident involving a dangerous, driverless truck. If you are a more sensitive reader, I recommend the first book in the series, “The Secret of the Old Clock.”
Jean Osterholt It is scary if you're under 12!
C16ara no! all the "scary" parts are like pranks. you should read it!!!
Savanna Kress It is mysterious and to her, it might seem scary but no it is not.
Saadhika Prakash It may seem a little spooky but not much, it is actually a really good book.
Ania Kasperkiewicz no. not at all. it is a little creepy, but it wont scary any one. it is more exciting than scary
Mar I read this book when I was about 9-10, it's not that scary, but there may be some slightly creepy parts.
Jaksen Nah, not so scary, but keep in mind there are several diff. 'versions' of the story as it's been highly edited throughout the years. For the best read, get the original. Nancy is much more of a risk-taker back then and there are lots of stereotypes galore.
Maylee G. I don't think so. I read it when I was ten I didn't find it scary, don't read it when your alone and your little though. You might be scared I don't know though it just depends.
Rachel Rabeneck It isn't scary enough that any young person would have nightmares or be frightened.
