|Growing up, I didn't read much of R. L. Stine, because I was an easily frightened child. I found this in the Lending Library and wanted to see what my adult self thought of it.
I'll start by saying it's not scary. It's a bit suspenseful, but for the most part the chapters end with a cliffhanger that then turns out to be nothing at the start of the next chapter.
The plot was a bit predictable and horribly corny.
I did really like that Zeke and Brooke were just friends and there was no weird secret love thing going on. I'm a sucker for friendships that don't turn into creepy love triangles.
Overall, it was a good read, but was more sad than scary.
