Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the first of the Fear Street series, Corey falls in love with Anna, the new girl at school. The only problem is that he can't tell if she's real--most of his friends have never seen her on campus, and she's not listed in the school's files. When he calls her family's home they are strange and evasive. In desperation, Corey goes to Anna's house --located on infamous Fear Street--and there a man tells Corey that Anna is dead. But a few nights later, Anna calls him and asks him to meet her. Anna's passionate kisses convince Corey that his love object is alive and kicking. The rest of this novel follows the same tedious pattern: each of Corey's torrid encounters with Anna is accompanied by several supposedly eerie incidents. Something strange is going on, but it is unlikely that readers will have the interest or stamina to stay with the mystery until it is resolved. Stine fans will have to hope that the rest of the Fear Street series proves a lot more fearsome than this tame offering. Ages 11-14. (June)
School Library Journal
Gr 6-10-- A new entry in the ``Fear Street'' series--that street where unexplained, terrifying events occur for no particular reason, to anyone brave enough to venture down its sidewalks. When Cory Brooks, high school gym star, meets Anna Corwin, the hauntingly beautiful girl who has just moved to Fear Street, he becomes preoccupied with her. With the help of good friends, particularly the girl next door, Cory unravels the puzzle of Anna's mysterious life. The result is a fast - moving tale that includes obsession, strange events , and the ultimate triumph of good over evil. The book moves along from start to finish , conveying an uneasiness that will keep readers going. Cory and his friends are typical teens , and their conversation and action are believable. The sense of something always about to happen and the cliff - hanging endings to the chapters will make this a good booktalking candidate. The vocabulary is simple, the premise interesting , and the plot compelling, making this book one for reluctant readers, as well as a useful addition for teens who like the ``creep'' genre. --Molly Kinney, North Dade Regional Library, Miami, FL

    Scarletstar- High branch

    A single tree sits in the middle of Fearclans camp, with a branch thats just low enough for a cat to jump onto. This is where all announcements and meetings take place. Hopefully, I will be able to oversee many of these meetings before my departure for Starclan.
