Series Sunday: The Lost Girl

(Fear Street Relaunch #3)

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.

"We all have moments of fear, I guess. But total paralyzing panic was something I never dreamed I'd experience." ~ pg. 26

My Series Sunday pick is The Lost Girl, the third book in the Fear Street Relaunch series by R.L. Stine. Yes, the Fear Street series is back with a new installment! Lizzy Walker is a new student at Shadyside High who constantly gets lost. She befriends Michael, much to his girlfriend Pepper's dismay. He invites Lizzy to a snowmobile party that (surprise, surprise) ends in a tragic accident. The aftermath is even more tragic with Michael's friends in lethal danger. Little do the teens know, the horror started over 60 years ago.

"I have powers. Time to use them." ~ pg. 29

Like most bookhearts, I grew up reading this popular horror series. I've often wondered whether R.L. Stine still has it. Were the Fear Street novels really as good as I remember? So when I had the opportunity to review an advanced readers copy of the relaunched series, I was giddy! I breezed through the 172 pages while sitting in my personal library enjoying the summer sunlight and fan breeze. The book is intended for young adults so the language and story line was not complex and very easy to follow. Unfortunately, my reader's imagination matured since reading a Fear Street novel so I guessed the plot immediately, plus author R.L. Stine kept the same formula.

Reading The Lost Girl sent me on a walk down middle school memory lane. It is a great nostalgic read for 30-something adults that you can read along with the teen(s) in your life. Add The Lost Girl to your pre-order or wish lists; its expected publication date is September 29, 2015. Welcome back to the Fear Street fan world, Robert Lawrence Stine!
