This BOOK IS THE BEST BOOK I THINK I HAVE EVER READ. IT WAS VERY HEART PUMPING I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WOULD HAPPEN NEXT,I THOUGHT THAT MADE IT VERY JUICY. I THINK A LOT OF GIRLS WOULD ENJOY THE BOOK, SOME OF THE PARTS WERE VERY SHOCKING . I WISHED THERE WAS A PART TWO BECAUSE I THINK THE ENDED VERY CRAZY.THE BOOK IS VERY ROMANTIC IN MANY WAYS. THE COVER IT SELF CAUGHT MY EYE,IT LOOKED VERY SUSPICIOUS.I LOVE SUSPICIOUS BOOKS, JUST HOPE PEOPLE READ THIS BOOK.

Ok so my friend told me about the book and said it was really good. I read it expecting apparently too much, because it really wasnt that good. Some parts are great but the ending was horrible! it ends up shes supposed to be locked up in a physco ward and shes escaped. It leaves the reader hanging with a pathetic ending and an ok-but-not-great story. Im sorry to all the fans but i dont reccomend it. Its a good start but for it to be good in my book, you would have to add in a bunch more chapters, details, and A GOOD ENDING! that is all.

The Girlfriend is a novel by the famous author, R.L. Stine. It is a story about a fun-loving teenager named Scotty. He¿s got a perfect life in school and out of school. The best thing though, is his girlfriend, Lora. They have been a couple since the 6th grade and now they are that ¿High school perfect couple¿ that everyone loves. When Lora goes off to London and Paris for a week, Scotty meets a new girl, Shannon. She has wild red hair and is very tiny with a shy little voice. Scotty makes the mistake of actually asking her out on a date and now she loves him so much, she¿s willing to do anything to keep him. Some examples of this are when Shannon breaks Scotty¿s hand. She may be tiny but she is VERY strong. Scotty of course trying to get away from Shannon, she squeezes his hand so tight and twists it this way and that, you hear a snap, and Scotty¿s hand is now broken. Shannon warns Scotty that she has older brothers who are ex-professional wrestlers. Of course Scotty is scared of this so he tries to be as nice as possible to Shannon with out turning her on even more. Eventually Scotty is faced with the problem of Lora coming home and he tries to hide everything that happened with Shannon. Shannon demands Scotty to break up with Lora and he definitely does not. To get Scotty back, Shannon sliced Scotty¿s beloved pet snake, Ernie in half, poisoned Lora¿s precious cat, Fluffernutter, and put Scotty¿s car in flames. Meanwhile, while all of this was happening, a big man was following Shannon around. Scotty didn¿t go near him because he thought that the man was one of Shannon¿s brothers. Whenever the man tried to talk to Scotty, he would run away, afraid that he might be beaten to death. In the end, Scotty hurts Shannon and thinks he killed her. He was so out of it and decided to bring Shannon¿s body to Lora¿s house since her and her parents are all at the place the party for Lora and Scotty going off to college is being held. With all of this, Scotty forgets it¿s his birthday and walks into the back door of Lora¿s house, Shannon¿s body over his shoulder, and hears ¿SURPRISE!¿ Then everyone sees the body over Scotty¿s shoulder and shrieks. About 2 seconds later the big man walks in and Scotty of course is very scared he will hurt him. It turns out that this man is an officer who has been watching over Shannon and been trying to catch her. Shannon was sent up for manslaughter and hadn¿t been living with anyone, no brothers, no mom, no dad, and no family. She needed treatment to get better. Scotty has a big, long talk with Lora and they love each other still. That party certainly had a surprise for everyone, not just Scotty!

Scotty had everything going for him. He¿s the quarterback of the football team, going to Princeton in the fall, and the homecoming queens boyfriend. Lora goes to Paris for a week, and the tables turn. Scotty meets a new girl, Shannon, just trying to help her out when she becomes stranded along side the road. Instead of the two going back to the homecoming dance they go on a date together. As Scotty¿s lies are coming out when Lora returns home, Scotty doesn¿t know what to do. Shannon won¿t leave him, Lora, or their families alone. Will Scotty get Lora¿s forgiveness or will Shannon¿s revenge take an important role and ruin everyone¿s life. Readers into mysteries and strong love will love R.L. Stine books.
