it was ok

This book was SERIOUSLY disappointing in many ways. I've always loved every Fear Street book, but I didn't like this one.

The book starts off with Becka and her friends, Lilah and Trish. Holly Perkins burst in right on the first chapter. Or maybe second. Whatever. Things start to get really intense and dramatic, and Holly claims she's Becka's best friend. The problem is, Becka doesn't remember Holly!

The same thing just kept on repeating. Holly did something, Becka freaked. And repeat. Holly did something, Becka freaked. It was just some weird cycle. This was a very good story idea, but R.L. Stine didn't do enough with it. Which surprises me to no end.

But as soon as I reached the last page, I couldn't help but blurt out, "That was TOO stupid!" We didn't even get a background on Holly, who she is, or why she's doing all of this. And I was so annoyed, because we don't really get to know what even happens in the story. But then I realized there's a part two.

Meh. I probably won't be purchasing part two, based on the reviews.
