Review: “I stood up straight. Two fat tree trunks rose in front of me, black against the purple black sky. I could barely see. I gazed around forcing my eyes to focus. ‘Brendan? Hey-Brendan’ I called in a hoarse whisper.”
In the city of Shadyside there is this girl named Rachel who’s 17 and she gets invited to Brendan Fear’s Birthday party (whom she has had a crush on since the 7th grade). She imagines the party to be a blast and for her to get to know Brendan but he’s is a Fear. Stories say that the Fear family and the location for the party is cursed. Will the party be an amazing time like she thinks?
Party Games, a Fear Street novel by R. L. Stein, is a terrific book. I recommend this book to 6th grade and up because there are some parts of the book that are scary - so don’t read before bed :). The book has appropriate words for 12 year olds and has some higher-level words. The story is written very well and is lively and full of action. The characters in the book are really believable and tell the story really well. The plot of the story is suspenseful and makes kids want to keep reading and find out what happens to the kids at the party. Overall I recommend this book to anyone who likes scary books.
