R.L.Stine was one of my favourite authors when I was growing up so when I saw this book on netgalley I jumped at the chance to read it. This book was everything I remembered and loved about R.L.Stine. The horror in the book seemed a bit more predictable to me but this might be due to the fact I am a lot older than the intended reading age for these books.
I really did enjoy this book it was a fun, fast paced read and even as an adult I did not seem some of the twists and turn coming.
I would recommend this book to anyone who read R.L.Stine as a child and wants to relive their youth.
