Review - 4 (3.5) Boundless Stars
When I was a child, I grew up on the Fear Street Novels. I seriously had every book and my best days were going to the small bookstore in our mall. Just to check if there was a new one, that I didn't know about.
When I saw this on NetGalley, I jumped on the chance. It was like I was a kid again.
R.L. Stines books are just as eerie as I remember. The haunting feeling that something just isn't right. Beth is a young girl, who figured out she has a type of power and uses it once, but this time. She used it on the wrong person.
Your transported to present day where you meet Michael, a high school senior. Whose drawn to the new girl at school. He doesn't know why and when things start happening, I'm surprised he doesn't question it more.
The twist in this story is actually pretty unique. It creepy and horrifying. I wouldn't expect anything less on Fear Street.
