R L Stine is one of my absolute favorite authors on the planet, so it wasnt hard at all to fall in love with this book. I used to read Goosebumps, also by Stine but now im more into the Fear Street books. Some of these books contain harsh stuff like murders but I really dont mind. 5/5 stars!

The Secret Bedroom is about a girl named Lea Carson that moves into a new house on Fear Street. All of the houses on Fear Street have a scary story to go with them. Lea's particular house has a bedroom in the attic that has been boarded up. The real estate agent says that someone was murdered in the room a hundred years ago and it had been boarded up ever since. Lea wants to know what or who is in the locked up room. R.L. Stine has written many books including the Goosebumps and Fear Street series. He has written over 300 books and he never learned to type. He only typed with his index finer on his left hand. In The Secret Bedroom Lea Carson moves to Shadyside on Fear Street. The house is over 100 years old and needs a lot of fixing up. Her parents always move into "fixer-uppers" because they like projects. When Lea discovers the attic, she also discovers a bedroom. The bedroom is boarded up and Lea wonders what is inside. The plot of The Secret Bedroom was written very well. It had a lot of twists, turns, and things that you didn't expect would happen. I like that the characters weren't explained in depth because it caused me to have my own image of what they looked like. The setting was not explained in depth either, but I liked that too. The style of the book was chilling. When Lea first goes into the attic it is scary because she starts to see things. She goes into the attic again and nothing is there. Lea starts to believe that she is going insane. Lea Carson wants to know what or who is in the boarded up bedroom in the attic of her house. The Secret Bedroom was a very exciting and creepy. It was written very well and all the critical elements were good. Overall it was a very excellent book.

This was a great book! I was at a store and looking at the book section(where you would find me the most) and I stumbled upon this book. I did not know that R.L. Stine had another series besides Goosebumps. I picked up The Secret Bedroom,read the back,and bought it. I got started with it as soon as I got home. I already liked Fear Street books after only reading a couple chapters of this book. I love the way R.L. Stine describes the creepy parts, like when Lea is thinking 'What's going on in the attic?' and hears noises up there or when she is actually going to open the door in the attic,and they are so real you could feel the fear.I think you should read this book because The Secret Bedroom is a great thiller!

Lea Carson's dad was transferred to Shadyside. The family moves into a creepy, old house on Fear Street. Her parents love to fix up old houses. She discovers a room up in the attic. This room has been boarded up with two by four for a hundred years or so. The story behind the boarded up room says that a murder was committed in the room and it has been closed and locked up ever since. Her parents go out to a party one evening and Lea is in the house alone. She hears footsteps inside the secret room. Lea goes up to the attic. She walks over to the door and listens for the noise. Suddenly, blood begins to ooz out from the doorway. She runs downstairs to call her friend, Deena. Then she dials 911. Her best friend Deena arrives. They both go up to the attic. Shaking and scared stiff. NO BLOOD! Deena's thinking, 'Is my friend crazy?' The police arrive, checks the house. Nothing again. The police leaves and Deena leaves. The next morning, she tells her parents about the noise, not the blood. For they may think she is crazy - too. Still another night - alone, she hears thumping, footsteps, and voices coming from the room in the attic. Lea goes upstairs - the voice is saying, 'Please open the door!' She prys the door open and discovers what is behind the door. You will have to read the book to find out what or who is behind the door.

Readers never know what they are going to get when they first pick up his books. Each and every one of them are unique and with this one there is no exception. Highly recommended for teen readers. Stine delivers and never disappoints.
