Title: The Haunted Mask
Series: Goosebumps #11
Author: RL Stine
Overall Rating: 3 stars

Carly Beth is so easily scared that it's actually a hobby of the people around her to think of new ways to scare her, and no matter how many times Carly Beth insists that she won't be scared anymore, she is. So in a plan to get revenge, she wants a Halloween mask so terrifying that it'll scare everyone...But when Halloween comes and goes...Carly Beth can't get the mask off...and it seems to be more than just your average mask.

This book was one that I would say didn't resonate with me as a child, and even less as an adult. I just don't really like this one that much. I can understand why kids would be afraid of it though, but everytime I think of a haunted mask I just think of the Jim Carrey film, The Mask, and it's totally ruined for me because that is such a funny film. I just can't take this book seriously.
