"Ever since a car accident killed her father and put Lisa and her mother into the hospital, Lisa can't think straight. She's plagued by nightmares and hallucinations that force her to relive the accident over and over again in vivid detail. When Lisa finds out that a neighbor is looking for a babysitter for her young son, she takes the job immediately, eager to keep busy and shake these disturbing images from her head.
But what promised to be an easy gig turns terrifying when Lisa begins to question exactly who — or what — she is babysitting."
Hey guys I'm one of the co-blogger, Princess. I received an ARC of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review and here are my thoughts:
I'm pretty sure some (many) of us here grew up reading R.L Stine's book because he's like the master of horror when it comes to scaring children. I guess that's one of the factor why this didn't really worked out for me. I have read tons of Stine's book that I noticed the same pattern that on the way I will just predict what's going to happen and it kinda ruined the book for me.
Also, the writing style doesn't really fit in my sense of enjoyment because it is made so simple that it came out more of a summarized story telling. I'm going to blame myself here because I know that his target audience are children maybe that's why it is written that way.
Maybe this is a sign of me growing up and leaving R.L Stines as a great part of my adventures in reading ever since I was a kid.
Overall, I think this was a great read if I'm still a kid but sorry this doesn't work on me anymore.
