Four (3.5) Boundless Stars
The Dead Boyfriend, is creepy and horrifying. Fear Street hasn't changed.
Caitlyn, telling her story through her Diary. About the horrifying situation, she somehow got herself in. Deena Fear has set her sights on her and her "boyfriend" Blade.
Mr. Stine has not lost his touch. The creepiness factor has gone up, since I originally started reading Fear Street as a kid.
I did enjoy this story. But the turn it made, was weird. I was almost confused about what was really going on. So with that I gave it 3.5 (4) Stars.
