REVIEW:

Great plot twist and Stine had me in suspense all throughout the book.

 

Theme:

  • Friendship
  • Family
  • Vengeance

Characters:

Brenda→ Another girl who can’t seem to control her anger. Brenda kind of reminds of me of the main character Becka, from The Best Friend. Brenda has coppered-color hair and is kind of feisty. She’s smart and a strong girl. I didn’t like her character at first, but towards the end, she was growing on me.

Hailey→ Hailey’s signature look was her full, bouncy blond hair. She is one of the typical female characters in this book. Causes drama and seeks revenge. I am able to understand her even though she is a bit childish to me.

Traci→ Traci has long straight black hair and pale skin. She’s pretty cool and she’s pretty much a normal teenage girl out of all the characters. I actually picture Traci as one of those girls who think they are grown and finds her looks to be very attractive. She doesn’t act like that per se, thats just the ways she carries herself to me.

Dina→ I really like Dina’s character. She’s tall with a short-almost-shoulder-length dark brown hair. She’s timid and has many layers. She’s more of the peacemaker out of the three best friends.

Style/Setting:

Imagery was great and the characters’ personalities were well developed. Each character had a unique personality and it made them seem like real people. There was foreshadowing and the suspense was pretty high. They were well played out and formed throughout the novel.

This was definitely a horror story and Halloween Night proves why I love R.L. Stine’s Fear Street novels so much.

I don’t really like reading third point of view but I find R.L. Stine’s third point of view to be entertaining and filled with enough emotion to keep me interested and informed on how the characters are feeling.

Lesson Learned?

  • (I can’t think of one, really. lol)
