Maggie keeps dreaming about a girl and then she starts seeing the ghost of this girl (who turns out to not be the girl's ghost but her living sister). I didn't guess the ending of the book until very close to the end, so it gets definite points for that. I also thought that the concept was good, and I liked that it actually involved the supernatural (unlike, for example, The Fire Game).

This scary story is appropriate for a middle school student that loves suspense. Since it is a horror story, the plot captures the reader and makes him wonder, "What is next?" Reluctant readers may find they actually keep reading to the end of the story since it is suspenseful. The main character, Maggie, is grieving the loss of her father and the family is forced to sell their suburban home and move into a spooky looking old house on Fear Street. The terrifying nightmares, of a teenage girl being stabbed to death, begin the first night when Maggie sleeps in an old fashion four poster canopy bed left there by the previous owners. By speaking with her neighbors, Maggie discovers that her reoccurring nightmare of the teenage murder actually happened on the beautiful bed she has been sleeping on. Soon, the awful accidents begin in her waking hours and her life is unpredictable and she begins to wonder if she is crazy. Although the author does describe horrible events, it is not done in a gory detailed way. Furthermore, the events are spaced out throughout the book so that the frightening scenes are not overwhelming.

personal response:Fear Street was where I left R.L. Stine 16 years ago. For this reason I decided to read this first. This was just as I remembered these to be. There is tension in the right places, a limited selection of characters combined with a close knit plot, and a nice mystery that spans throughout though the mystery isn¿t one that is presented to be solved.

It was good I really liked this book outta all of his.The book was about how this girl would be having dreams and things that she dreamed would be coming true

This book was pretty good.The Travers family has had a rough time lately. With a death in the family they seems to be on edge with each other all the time. Maggie & Andrea can not seem to get along for the sake of the remaining parent. Moving into a ramshackle new house on fear street doesn't help. Things go from bad to worse when the nice surprise awaiting Maggie in her new room turns out to be her worst nightmare, literally. Who can she turn to when her nightmares begin to come true and everyone thinks she is crazy?
