Hide and Shriek - R.L. Stine, Emily James

I never really got into Goosebumps books when I was a kid. I was pretty much afraid of everything so it was probably for the best. Now that I'm an adult and slightly less fearful, I give these books a quick read when I stumble across them to see what I missed out on.

Overall, I thought this was a good book. Really good story with a unique premise. There is definitely some great suspense building. As an adult, I found much of the plot fairly predictable, but I think children would enjoy it. While I liked how things wrapped up at the end, I found this book as a whole more sad than scary. The bullying was kind of hard to read.

Well-written, good story, but not necessarily all that scary despite the whole hide-and-seek-ghost plotline.
